Default Re: Tall banana, any ideas what it is? (pictures)

The only problem with that is that Namwah plants characteristically have a distinctive pink midrib, especially when young. (Mauve is more accurate, but most people don't know what that is.) Anyway, those leaves have a light green midrib so it is doubtful it is Namwah unless it is really sad.
If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.
