Default Flag on a dwarf chamaluco!

Hi all,

Just wanted to share that my 3 year old dwarf chamaluco is going to flower soon. A little late in the growing season but better than no flower. I have this beast in a large pot that is buried in the ground. Hopefully I can dig it up and bring indoors and actually get some ripe fruit next year. We'll see.....

Erik

Thank you! Chamaluco is listed by TARS with it's own accession number (ABB type). It looks and grows much like dwarf orinoco to me in zone 6. I don't have orinoco at the moment so I can't do a side by side comparison - just my recollection.

Sounds like you are having a pretty successful season this year! Never heard of Chamaluco either but I would like to know how a guy in Pennsylvania ends up with a banana plant that doesn't even appear in the Wiki??

Thanks!

I got this from TyTaylor a few years back. The pups are very heavy duty and this plant produces the thickest P-stem I can achieve in PA! I have one 2' tall chamaluco pup that had a corm so large it basically filled up a 5gal nursery pot. So I had to put it into a 10gal nursery pot immediately on transplant.... crazy!

Here is the 'lil champ' pup after transplant. I am using a marker to count the number of leaves until flowering. Hopefully I can better manage flower timing on this one....

And here comes the flower! In another month, this plant needs to come indoors somehow....
