Default Is this a Mysore in bloom?

Hello all,
I've been lurking since I bought/planted my first banana plants this last January (from Greenearth in Melbourne Florida) and now what was purchased as a "Mysore" in popping out hands left and right since Thanksgiving and I'm looking for some expertise regarding ID.

Besides the fact that it's from a tissue culture (suspect to mystery plants) it bloomed at approx. 7 feet and I thought Mysore was taller? Anyway I'm in 9b a few miles from the Gulf so I'm hoping these nanners will ripen okay through our "winter" down here. So far I count 100 bananas and coming! It is planted (along with the supposed Ice Cream and Goldfinger) outside my pool cage so hoping the microclimate from our heated pool helps them along. Thanks for any help and also patience since it's a photo link. I took pics of the whole plant, stem, bloom/peduncle, flowers/nannas, and flag leaf. ThanksI will figure out how to upload photos directly eventually lol.

Thanks, so you think a Chiquita store type variety then? The bananas seem so tiny to me its hard to imagine theyd get near that big but this is a first for me so well see. I gave them some potash before and after the bloom and they were fed compost and all kinds of fert for the 10 months before the bloom. If its a store cavendish type than hopefully theyll taste better..we were kind of looking for some different flavors like we had traveling.

No, not Mysore. I agree with Brod that it looks more like a Cavendish variety.

I agree, not Mysore, and first thought is a Cavendish type as well. Keep posting photos, and leave on the male bud for a better ID.

I vote cavendish also. And home grown are like a totally different variety to me. They are always so creamy and amazing! Way better than store bought.

I also agree not a Mysore and i have a couple friends who bought Dwarf Orinoco from Greenearth and were shipped dwarf cavendish. He said cavendish were thicker and more cold hardy than Orinoco. Stay away from Greenearth. I have heard that’s all he ships is cavendish. I will say they always look very healthy on arrival.

Good luck and keep us updated. Congrats on the bunch. Looks like it’s been fed well! Great job.

Thanks everyone..hopefully I dont have three dwarf cavendish next to the pool. At least he could be decent enough to send a variety lol. I also ordered a Manzano and two dwarf reds from him in May. Maybe Ill post some pics when and if they flower and see what I actually have. I will say the supposed dwarf reds are looking more textbook but not sure on the Manzano.

I added a picture to the album with my hand next to the first hand for reference. My hands are tiny so I guess they fill out and get longer? If this is a cavendish variety what size should I expect? Thanks again!

Seems more like a ‘Dwarf Brazilian’ or ‘Raja Puri’ at this point, not a Cavendish. Definitely leave the male bud, it will be critical for ID. Also, if all the dead flowers and bracts are staying on looking ratty and you feel compelled to clean it up, dont, at least for now, as the manner in which that mess may manifest is an important trait. The friits are too young to judge size, give them some time to grow. Cavendish fruit sizes vary greatly depending on cultivar and conditions/management, even it were Cavendish, it takes
some extra effort to get anything close to the grocery store giants.

Very interesting..the small red splotches on the bananas are pretty but I cannot seem to find anything that indicates that trait means it is one variety and not another. Also I noticed the flowers are mostly pink now where they seemed more yellow when they started. I’ll leave the flowers on as well as the bud. Interestingly the plant shot up two new pups the last week! Thanks again for your help

Default Re: Is this a Mysore in bloom?

Hello again all, I uploaded some more photos of the bananas that we can’t identi. The winter has been unusually harsh here the past few weeks (as my fellow Floridians can attest) and our weather station measured 28 degrees for a good clip a couple weeks ago. It appears all my bananas lived but the leaves froze to the midribs. So far the bananas themselves aren’t mushy or seem to have been damaged.

Besides still trying to identify this banana variety can anyone provide info on what to expect as far as ripening at this point? Temps in the 70’s mostly with some 80’s sprinkled in. Nite time lows in 50’s-60’s with occasional upper 40’s post cold front. There aren’t any leaves left so unsure how these babies will ripen. They bloomed day after Thanksgiving and it seems like they are just hanging out lol. The peduncle is still making make flowers and they seare m persistent if that helps in ID.

Thanks all and here’s th link again.

Was there ever any coloration on the undersides of young leaves as they unrolling? Any reddish hues? Or where they always totally green?
