Only 1 Iholena a couple years ago and I don't remember the details. I have a friend in the situation now as they looked filled out and ready earlier because they are already more yellow than most types. She picked of one and ate it out of hand once very yellow, and loved it.

The "fruit may require another 2 to 3 weeks" did not apply for the Tigua, but was wondering about others in the subgroup.

I guess " The bunch is small to medium-sized." did not apply for the Tigua either.

The Hawaiian Iholenas I've seen here look much more yellow from even early stages than do the green ones on this bunch. But they do eventually change into the all yellow ones like most of those in that top hand. Before that they look like some of those in those first hands that are yellowish with some green on the tips.

Just thought I'd let you know the box arrived in decent condition to PA. A few fruits were ripe - and I have to admit I even ate parts of the two bananas used as packing material!

The ones I've tried had a great taste and texture - much different than typical store bananas!

Thanks

I got to try some banana types that I would never have had the opportunity. If you ever do that again, let me know. I even tasted the packing. What were the longer ones with the orangeish flesh? They were fantastic. I assume the small ones were the vc, very good, the packing was the sweetheart, and the fourth type is majorly different than anything in the stores and better tho a little tart.

Would still love to taste the FHIA-03 sweetheart in its prime to see if it's too sweet!

The SH-3640 was my favorite tasting one, althought I'd probably have to try FHIA-03 again in a less goopy state.

BTW, both of my little ones are just about ripe.

The FHIA-21 were definitely our favorite and that is all time fav. Could spending 6 days aside of over ripe bananas have sweetened them up? The SH-360 were as good as store bought, not as sweet and a little tangy and tasty. The 2 little ones did turn yellow and had a good flavor but a little under developed, I think we would like them.

A bunch of boxes of these were shipped out yesterday, maybe there will be some 'Taste Reports'.

Next up, Gros Michel & whatever else

Enjoy

No, we pay a service to deliver the boxes to the PO and they will not wait in line for packages going outside the US.
