Default Blue Java

Hi there,

I'm new to the site. I have purchased a few of the Blue Java plants from Plant Depot, Home Depot, and Lowes. I've read that most likely I have Namwah plants. The fruit tastes really good. I have harvested a few bunches so far.

Has anybody purchased from Banana-plants.com? They are selling Blue Java plants. Any luck they are real?

Thanks,

Kurt

I lived in a southern CA zone 9b from 2001-2012. In my experience the Namwah grown there tastes better than the true Blue Java or the true Gold Finger grown there.

I have both Namwah and Blue Java and do like them both a lot.
My recent bunch harvested about 2 weeks ago tasted fantastic. Most of my family, friends and neighbors liked it better than the winter ripened Namwah bunch harvested back in March. I personally have liked it a lot in banana bread and (well it is its name, right?) homemade ice cream. Out of hand I probably liked them equally with Blue Java being more of a custard consistency, though not the vanilla taste as often described, but more fruity compared to Namwah which was just sweet.
If you have the space, I would grow them both.

It will be interesting to compare a summer ripened Namwah with Blue Java.

Crazy Banana, where did you buy your real Blue Java plant? I'm not too far from San Diego.

Darn, I'm very far from SD and don't have a garden space yet. I'd like to taste a real one just to see if it's good or as lousy as reported to be. (Those dragon fruit nearly hooked me and then I 'et one. Um, no.)

Road trip! Mini meet? Pictures, please? People included if you don't mind.

I am not a city person, but San Diego is a beautiful city with lots of fun things to do. Has a nice airport, too.
You are more than welcome to come over, too.
Pictures: i am afraid that I have already way too many "real deal" Blue Java photos in my photo gallery here on bananas.org
They are not only tasty but also very pretty.
