As a brief report, the bananas ripened well and they were very nice. The flavor was similar to Goldfinger, but I thought slightly better. The texture was excellent: firm yet smooth when chewed. My tiny plant made a tiny bunch (10 lb total), but the fingers were nice sized (120-150 grams) considering how small the plant was. I wish this variety was more productive in my yard. That said, it wouldn't displace Mysore or Dwarf Brazilian on my list of favorite bananas to eat.
