Default great mystery - FHIA?

Ive grow this particular banana for about 10-12 years. It been cold hardy and precocious and disease resistant.

its semi dwarf 7-8 ft at growth point when flowering. makes 35-40lb bunches or so. The bananas when peeled and exposed to air do not brown, nice trait.

its been a winner in my collection and I need to put a name on it.

Looks fine for 'FHIA-01'/'Goldfinger'. Have any photos of the male bud?

"cold hardy" To me cold hardy means something only if you add a temperature.

I need Cold hardy to 0 degrees F.

When you say fhia 1 ‘goldfinger’ you mean the true fhia grom honduras or some of the mutants found in florida from poor tissue culture clones? Its flowering now once this new rack form a ill get picks of males bud and flowers.

I have another banana similar to this one, but different.

It looks a lot like my TC off type goldfinger. It’s hard to tell without good pictures of the male bud. So take lots of pics of the male bud this time around.
