Default Re: Banana Plant to produce fruit zone5/6


If you look at the pup to flower and then flower to harvest times for Orinoco and Raja Puri (and others), it can give you a good idea at how important it is to have the plant flowering timed properly with your summer growing season.

Good luck! Have fun and enjoy the plants!


Ok, so I never considered the timing of the flowering, which I can see would be very important in my growing zone. How can I ensure the flowering at the correct time?

Also assuming the dwarf Orinoco and raja puri can both produce in zone 5, which of the 2 is the better tasting? I understand this matter is subjective, but assuming I am looking for the variety closest to a common store bought banana?
