Thanks Ty! Yeah, when I first bought this aeae clone, it was heavily variegated, but after adding an ton of P&K to the soil just before the cold set in (I think it had a lot of Calcium in it), the leaves turned solid green with no variegation.

SH-3640 is going to replace Williams, but I'm optimistically cautious about this clone because based on the way it's "behaving" so far (ie. taking more than a month from a healthy, strong sword pup with roots to form its first leaf), it might not be as cold hardy as many of the other cultivars. The varieties that require higher temps to grow normally tend to be less cold hardy from my experience, but that's very limited and you never know.

Anyone else have feedback regarding SH-3640's cold tolerance?

Mine held nice green leaves as well as Brazilian last winter, uncovered in a couple low 30's frosts. Kept growing through the winter. Sigatoka must be dealt with, though. Neem oil is helpful for that.
I remember it took about a month to get going when I planted mine. I remember worrying something was wrong. It was a 3 foot pup with lots of roots and freshly dug just a couple hours before, from Worm Farmer. (Anyone heard from him recently?)

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.

Mine also! I find the real blue java is more cold hardy than namwas. Namwa is a way faster grower though. Blue java also takes longer to flower for me. It will take another year to verify this.

After almost a year of only producing mostly green leaves, this Aeae is finally producing its first leaf filled with beautiful variegation! We had a heatwave recently, which caused some of the white pigments to overheat and burn. This plant isn't the most cold hardy, so it'll be interesting to see if we can get it to fruit up here in Northern California. I'm not aware of anyone successfully getting Aeae to produce mature bananas this far North. Photo taken 8/29/17:

If you are truly in cold hardiness zone 9b it should not be a problem. What community are you located in?
