Re: Fusarium/panama disease
Don't get me started on doctors and drug companies... Sorry to hear of it all, though.

It seems you would need to try to keep any fungus alive there. Also sorry to hear of your fungal issues.
What's the mystery illness?
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.
