Default Best variety for comercial organic production in USDA 10b ?

Well thats the question, nobody cultivates bananas in my province , or even near....so i have no much first hand information. I m planting a 1 hectare food forest and wanna make the banana one of the main crops. Any sugestion? About production , shorter times of rippening, hardiness, flavour......anything will be apreciated. I have made some investigation and namwah looks like a good choice, i have 6 plants now. But maybe some of you know a better one.
Btw, cavendish cant survive in 10B, not enough to fruitify.

Thx in advance! I m in love with this forum and its people. Salud!

Dwarf Namwa or real deal FHIA-1 Goldfinger that has the big fingers. Dwarf Brazilian would be my third choice. Namwa and FHIA-1 have bigger bunches by weight than Dwarf Brazilian and shorter filling time. I’ve never tasted a real deal FHIA-1 so cannot comment about taste but many think it will be the one to replace Cavendish.

Is there a real deal FHIA-1 Goldfinger that has small fingers or some other real deal FHIA-1 Goldfinger that's being sold on the forum?

Haha.

There are a many, many Goldfingers in circulation with the small fingers. The big fingers not so much. One is the real deal and the other is not.

I just wanted to be sure you weren't talking about the american goldfinger.

You seem to be on top of the FHIA-01 situation so you might be the best person to ask but if someone else has info please add it. Is the FHIA-01 coming out of tissue culture now a real FHIA-01. I know the FHIA-21 is going into tissue culture soon and if the FHIA-01 needs to be corrected it might as well get done at the same time.
