From my research and talking to Logees. They have their own TC lab and it is all done by them. I was told the dwarf iholena was acquired by them from Hawaii (sounded like in person). And they had them and was selling the their clone before agristarts was sent their material.

I have a friend in Florida who fruited one of the agristarts clones and said the fruit tasted very good! His also fruited at dwarf size! 7’-8’ I have a picture of his bunch uploaded to my Flickr. It’s in the album iholena iholena.

Here is a picture of my dwarf iholena from Logees. It’s been a good grower. It is a iholena type for sure!

It keeps on opening, I didn't know if the moving would have hurt it, we did bruise them two places I see. should I let the male bud on for ID or can't this really be ID?

Sarah, can you take some more photos of the flowers, close up and in focus? I want to start building my database of flowers to study for ID purposes.
Thanks!

Cloudy is not necessarily bad. Like a giant softbox, less shadows.

But also less light, somewhat.

Yeah, listening to Gabes advice about lookin at a LOT of plants. the only way I'm going to get to do that is by the ones on here and what I see around, I don't travel as much as Gabe has to specifically banana lands, but I can try.
what do you have that you're trying to ID?

Here are some pictures, let me know if there are other angles you would like, or if they aren't clear enough I can try again.

I have a young Dwarf Iholena and the underside of a new leaf is what I call a 'mauve' color.

Finally they are starting to ripen! its been around 16 weeks since the flower appeared, oct 8 - jan 30. not as short as I wished, but it didn't have the best temp either while it was ripening. it went down to low 40s sometimes, now I'am keeping the temps up a little higher since we have tomatoes in the greenhouse. try not let it get below 55 but 60 is my goal. this morning the temp outside was 8, not as low as the Northern States!

[IMG][/IMG]

And I could'nt resist so had to try it! even tho it's a little under ripe.
I had a DC that the bunch broke before completely filling out so that is what I was comparing with and my memory.

I would say it had a neat tart flavor to it. not sure what else to say since that was the most distinct difference I noticed.
next time I try one I'll think more while I'am eating it I was very impressed with the orange/pinkish color and trying a new banana that I didn't think enough about it.
When I try a ripe one I'll try give a better flavor report.

Here is my thread on the same issues. It has pictures of both the Dwarf Iholena and the TALL Dwarf Iholena. These both came out of the same batch from Agristarts. There seems to be a lot of the full size off types coming out. My rack was larger on the full size but it could have been cultural differences since mine were getting more nutrients and water than the true dwarf at my friends farm.

Interesting!
I wouldn't mind having the short kind I have to put them in my greenhouse for the winter and I don't have that size greenhouse.
This year I am planning to plant out some bigger plants and get them to fruit outside!
I'm still not sure how to tell when they are fully ripe since I hear they turn yellow before they are completely ripe.
The taste report so far is that they have a "citrus flavor" (a little acidic) and they definitely are softer than a DC . I'll give a better report when all of my family give there opinions.

My cognizance is Agristarts started tissue refined these ensuing to securing material from here on the Big Island. This is an extraordinary plan to hear, in light of the fact that a significant extended period of time earlier without a doubt the quantity of these was surveyed to be under fifty.
