Sometimes they cling on but not very tight, they tend to fall off more so than cavendish, which you'd have trouble even trying to pull them off.

Yeah I don't know, mine have never been that tight. Usual the bracts fall off leaving the false fingers.

I was under the impression male bract retention/separation is one of the key indicators to determine whether a plant is a dwarf or a tall for the particular variety. I'm sure there are some exceptions but thought this was a general rule.

I think climate has a lot to do with that. Los Angeles California: pretty hot, dryer. South Florida: Still hot, tropical. Humidity, temp definitely determines that. That is my take on it.

I've also grown Tall Hawaiian Apple. There are photos in my gallery.

Btw what does your dwarf Brazilian taste like? Do they have an apple flavor?
