Default Hello

Hello,
I was a previous member named Bamboo connoisseur, but have since had my old email acct deactivated. So I have decided to start a new one. My name is Aaron.
Currently I have growing: Florida tall green Cavendish, Black Thai, Manzano apple, and a dwarf Cavendish. I hope to aquire Namweh, both the regular and dwarf Gros Michel, Grand nain, Mysore, Goldfinger, Pisang, and more.
Right now I have the tall green Cavendish fruiting as well as an apple. The apple fruits seem quite tiny compared to the other.
I also grow other plants such as mangos, including Orange sherbert, Valencia pride, Maha Chinook. I grow avocados too, including bacon, and my personal favorite the Brogden. I also grow many types of bamboo including some of the largest bamboos known such as Dendrocalamus giganteus. I also grow other edible plants.
I look forward to good conversation, trades and such, and learning. Thank you for such a great site, and helpful people.

Hey Aaron.. welcome back! I would certainly be interested in a thai black pup should you get one, and I have plenty of tall namwah to trade if you were interested. Where are you located? Thanks!

Thank you. I am from central Florida in Geneva.
That trade sounds great! I will let you know as soon as I have a pup available. It should not take long.

Do you have any pics of your thai blacks? Do they really have a black pstem? Some of the photos ive seen show really black features, and some are very minor.. was wondering what real ones actually look like. Thanks!

Hello, yes they do have a good deal of black to dark deep purple on the p-stems and leave stems. It darkens until about medium to tall stage and then the stem becomes more green as it matures. It will retain the black leaf stems though. I am trying to upload a couple pics, will do so once I can.

Hi. Welcome back.

I'm in Sanford. Have Orinoco for sure and 5 others I purchased that are undetermined: Manzano, Gros Michel, Namwa, Majoi and Pisang Raja. Would be willing to share with u when I'm sure of ID's. The Raja fruits and looks more like a Manzano.

Here's to the Manzano being something else I like. Frankly, I won't complain. The Orinoco was a gift and I wouldn't have chosen that variety. Turns out it's quite tasty and I can't wait til they ripen (2 bunches as I write).

Hi, nice to meet you.
I hope they turn out to be true. Thank you for the offer, and hope to share a few pups.

I did, but killed it lol. It is a Fe'i aiuri. I made the mistake of leaving it in full sun, and it was a tc. Its a disappointment, as I really wanted this type of banana. You live and you learn. I will try again.
