Re: Young Namwah or young blue java?
Ok so here is my update. I wrote to them two days ago and have not heard back since. The last thing they said was that they assured me it was an ice cream banana tree. I mentioned how various members of a site I belong to claim otherwise, and asked if they would please explain why there might be these differing opinions, and also if they could clarify the differences between a young namwah and a young ice cream. Finally, I even suggested that perhaps their supplier made an error. I hoped that might allow the nursery to feel I wasn't pointing the finger at them and have them save face.
Anyway, the nursery is Sow Exotic in Winter Haven, Florida. To be clear, my goal isn't to have members here look badly on this nursery, but rather to have members here be aware of the possibility of mislabeling. Moreover, being that namwah is a very desirable variety, I'm not even compelled to ask for a refund, and the tree is doing very well. I will just be more careful next time and probably look elsewhere.
Thanks to everyone on bananas.org who have assisted me in my questions. I feel welcomed here as a new member and look forward to continuing posts and learning with the community.
