Default Re: Wellspring Gardens Credible?

I ordered (From Green Earth Publishing) what I was assured were the real deal Blue Java a year and a half or so ago (Right around the time I was becoming active on this site) and was all excited when they came as they had pointy blue green leaves... Then they began growing and the color changed to a lighter green and the midribs became pink and I knew I had been duped...
They looked like this when I got them...

After a few weeks they changed to this...

I guarantee you the two bunches blown down by Irma last year were NOT blue Java...
He also sent me something with wine stains instead of the other banana I ordered, and replaced them with another wrong banana which I later found to be a Dwarf red... If you don't mind mystery bananas, his plants come hardened off and healthy.
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.
