how old are these? We have a Raja with the first hand opening and will help it to ripe fruit, what ever it takes. Wish us luck.

The trees are 14 months old.
I can get the raja to set fruit in 6 months from the ground up, but that means they set in Sept, which is too late to ripen here.
If you notice in the photo, I have another Raja behind the fruiting one. I keep the pups cut back until late June, then let one grow.It will freeze in Dec. before fruiting.
I then cut all the leaves off for winter.
The following spring it will continue growing and fruit by the end of June.
I hope that makes sense.

The taller fruit is 8' to the bottom of them, the smaller plant's fruit is about 6' off the ground.

On second thought, the second one looks more like a Cavendish type. Raja Puri fruit don't normally get that big and don't curve that much, I don't think, and those don't even look fully mature yet. They also tend to be more bunched up. It's hard for me to tell because I never got to see my Raja Puri fruit reach maturity due to the cold winter we had. Here is a Raja Puri bunch.
