As Hector said, The bunch fills out a little quicker and the fruits are a little bigger. If it was just for me, I might not do it. But...fruit buyers want big fruit. For dwarf superplantain, I always prune to 5 hands. I try to keep Hua Moa to five hands as well. On Dwarf Puerto Rican Plantain I leave the 3 fingered hand as the final hand. My goal this season is to document a lot of what I do on the farm.
