This characteristic is not unique to Horn plantains there are other subgroups that will also produce bunches with more hands and smaller fruit after the first cycle.
Thank you, that makes sense. It was almost unbelievable as to how it could stay a popular variety of it went went down hill from a low initial turnout.
Would separation from the mat regain the large but limited fruit characteristics? How does AR compare to other plantains in terms of flavor?
Collector and general freak about Banana's, Passiflora, Annonaceae, Garcinia, Artocarpus, Plinia, Euginia, and any other fruit I can get my hands on!
Saba, Double Mahoi, Manzano, Gros Michel, Hua Moa, Truly Tiny or Princes, Raja Puri, an unconfirmed "ice cream", a balbasiana seedling I grew, a gifted unidentified plantain, and about 10+ rescue banana's
EVERYTHING!!!!! But i'd like to round out with some Hawaiian varieties and some plantain diversity.
