This website reports that this is a cavendish variety with Gros Michel flavor. I like how they refer to the GM as "ancient".

Fruit importer Weichert presents a new banana variety Uur

However this webiste reports that its very different from cavendish

I imagine that Cavendish was seen as "exotic" in the early days.

It's interesting that they are using sand as a well-draining potting mix and "Weeds are used as natural fertilisers."

It's like what small farmers are doing in Africa, India and in other parts of the world.
