Default Dwarf Canendish?

I have allways thought this to be a Dwarf Cavendish. Had it for two years now but never removed any pups or repotted so it's a bit stunted. It also got some damage from the BBQ one night. I told it not to get so close to the fire.

Lol, still looks good to me despite the "too close to the fire" episode, lol. I wonder how you all can know if it is dwarf cavendish or if it is any other cavendish variety?

And the answer is



You have to get it up to size and fruit it. Maybe another 4 years??


Could be super dwarf or any other cavendish variety.

Combination of fruit size/quantity and size of the plant at bloom should give some direction towards figuring it out.

The stature is not right for 'SDC', and since 'Dwarf Cavendish' is such a rediculously common banana, chances are that you own one. It is always possible that you own a different Cavendish cultivar, like 'Gran Nain', 'Mahoi' or 'Williams' but they are not as readlity available in nurseries or as widley sold as the "regular" 'Dwarf Cavendish'.

Thanks guys. I may re-pot it and remove some of the pups and then we'll see what happens.
