The rachis angle looks wrong.

Richard, rachis meaning the the peduncle
or the stalk of the bloom?
This picture is from Nanaman back in '08...

The stalk falls straight down@
a 45 degree angle from the psuedostem.
(Banana ID 101)

PRG photo closeup of the bloom...

The Rachis Position looks correct and is consistent with the SH-3640.

The stalk from the corm to the first hand is the peduncle, from the first hand to the distal end is the rachis.


Bunch Position

Yup, I reversed the definitions of rachis and peduncle.

Looks greater than a 60 degree angle to me.
