Default Re: Arm and Leg for Big Mike/Gros Michel Bananas?

Good luck Mike! I haven't tasted one since my earliest chilhood. Basically I do remember they're sweeter and if I'm not mistaken had more vestigal seeds(the faint black makings in the middle) than the Cavendish we are forced to eat today. I've been looking for a while now. If I ever do get one and am able to produce pups I'll keep you in mind. I'd probably ask one of the other members if he'd TC it(one of the pups) for me so there would be a small supply for members here. Good luck. With persistance we'll come up with one.
