The best way to fruit bananas!! Ignore them, starve them, and shred them with a stick..

Thanks. I was just curious where they came from, Bryce.
There are 2 suckers on the one I received from you & and they're pushing 6 feet already. They stole all the love I was giving the clump, and the original plant gave up.

Honestly I got the worst results putting lots of care in my bananas. I do tend to keep the suckers off so that may factor in bigger plants. It's Not to benefit the plant but to increase my numbers. SH 3640 is awesome especially when a jungle of them is established.

It appears that Inverness FL is in USDA cold hardiness zone 11. If I had that weather I could probably get by with a lot less plant care too.

That's about the driving distance from here to Fresno, CA ... LOL.

I see the Weather Underground has a few stations online from Inverness. Is this station in your micro-climate?

As a brief report, the bananas ripened well and they were very nice. The flavor was similar to Goldfinger, but I thought slightly better. The texture was excellent: firm yet smooth when chewed. My tiny plant made a tiny bunch (10 lb total), but the fingers were nice sized (120-150 grams) considering how small the plant was. I wish this variety was more productive in my yard. That said, it wouldn't displace Mysore or Dwarf Brazilian on my list of favorite bananas to eat.

Yes, thanks. The fires are several miles southeast of us. Last year's Thomas Fire came within about a mile of us. That was scary.

I have those all over my yard, and the messy rachis that Steve mentions is always present on them. It is not present on the SH-3640, which was mostly, but not entirely clean. I think this variety just needs hot, humid conditions to be happy, and grow to its full potential. We don't have that in California, but you Florida folks do.
Interesting observations. Here is a photo (sorry, bananas.org does no let me flip it correctly) of my supposed to be SH3640 (Richard has his from my mat, source is bananimal). I thought it might be a mutant, but if you look at the inflorescence with its retaining bracts, it sure reminds me of a dwarf Brazilian or Raja Puri.
Right now I have three plants with an inflorescence and fruit bunch and it took me a long time to finally have them fruit. The fruit bunches are not filling in the way I was hoping for either (but I admit negligence this year). Overall disappointing and I am grateful to have the real deal from Hector now, so more than likely this mat will have to go.
