No scare. Namwah is a delicious banana. "beam2050"seems to be confused. Namwah is nothing like the IceCream - Blue Java and "Tytaylor" has explained some significant differences very well.
"Beam2050", I noticed you have the IceCream listed as a variety you are growing. A few weeks back I remember you have stated that you have obtained some of your plants as TCs from suppliers like Florida Hill Nursery. I assume your so called "IceCream" and "Namwah" look the same because you did get the same TCs variety, Namwah possibly but definitely not Blue Java. I guess you still have to find the real Blue Java/IceCream if your IceCream looks like your Namwah
Please don't add to the confusion newbies already are facing.
