No idea then. But those photos of the bananas being sold outside the temple sure look like Mysore. Thanks for finding those photos Rainforezt.

It's amazing how they can just sit in suspended animation in small pots. I still have one of those blue java I got from you two years ago in a pot. It's put out 12 leaves in 2 years and is only slightly bigger than when I got it from you. The one I put in the ground this year (finally) is starting to pick up speed and looking good, though still small. It's made 6 leaves in the time the other made only 2.

Overnight my "Temple" banana unfurled a flag leaf. It's about 1/3 the length of prior leaves. The pstem height is about 9.5 feet and the base diameter is 10 inches.

Yeah, congrats. Perfect timing. Looks like a pre-flag and pretty soon we will be able to narrow the variety down.
My first bunch never developed because of cold. Second inflorescence choked, hope yours will be fine.

Nice goin Richard!
But is that the same TB
you pictured in 03/14 post #32?
Is it still in the 25G pot?
Or is it the pup of the 1 you pictured?

Like PRGiant mentioned on another post,
the Hua Moa and Tigua are sporting less
than 300 days from plant to harvest.
I ordered tc of Mona Lisa and the specs
from plant to harvest is 311days.
Are these 3 the top for speed from plant to harvest?
When they say plant...is that from corm or tc I wonder?

I dont know if anyone has started a thread
on the top 5 fastest to harvest.
I sure would like to know since many of the newbies
Im sure would like to taste their own naners...
that didnt sound right!

You know what I mean!
Cheers!

Don't expect tropical maturation rates in southern CA.

Looking gooooood!

That side of the house will get shaded
and cool breezes in no time yea?
Are those all temple bananas??
Nice planters as well. Are those going to be
covered up with mulch to the top edge?
