Default Young Namwah or young blue java?








Above is a photo of my tree that the nursery says is a young blue java. However, two members of bananas.org on a different forum have told me it is namwah and now I am torn between what the nursery claims and what these helpful site members claim. What say the rest of you?

I grow both and looking at my younger plants, It's a Namwah.
Great tasting banana by the way!

Happy growing,
Darla

Nothing Blue Java about it. Screaming Namwah.

Default Re: Young Namwah or young blue java?

Ok so here is my update. I wrote to them two days ago and have not heard back since. The last thing they said was that they assured me it was an ice cream banana tree. I mentioned how various members of a site I belong to claim otherwise, and asked if they would please explain why there might be these differing opinions, and also if they could clarify the differences between a young namwah and a young ice cream. Finally, I even suggested that perhaps their supplier made an error. I hoped that might allow the nursery to feel I wasn't pointing the finger at them and have them save face.

Anyway, the nursery is Sow Exotic in Winter Haven, Florida. To be clear, my goal isn't to have members here look badly on this nursery, but rather to have members here be aware of the possibility of mislabeling. Moreover, being that namwah is a very desirable variety, I'm not even compelled to ask for a refund, and the tree is doing very well. I will just be more careful next time and probably look elsewhere.

Thanks to everyone on bananas.org who have assisted me in my questions. I feel welcomed here as a new member and look forward to continuing posts and learning with the community.

I noticed they also sell monstera borsigiana as deliciosa. Borsigiana is considered a subspecies but the resulting plant and fruit is nowhere near comparable.

Identifying irresponsible nurseries and suppliers is a valuable service provided by members of this site. Takes around two years for an enthusiast to figure out what he/she bought through flowering. We are all limited by time. It is not replaceable.

Thankfully, namwah is easily recognizable at an early stage... Those mauve (It's a color, purplish pink for men like me... My wife's favorite color, so I know it.) midribs give it away every time... They tend to lighten over time.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.
