"Brazilian. The fruit is subacid and of poor quality; it has little to recommend it as a dessert banana, and its acceptance in Hawaii seems to be a good example of the power of need and habit in influencing the demands of a market." - Norman Simmonds - Musa Hall of Fame

Interesting. It looks a lot like Iholena types, and also is pretty fast from flower to harvest.

Rob, how many Iholena types are you growing.
Just the 2 I've been able to get my hands on. The common Red Iholene, and one that is supposed to be a rare 'Upehupehu, but could be an Iholena Lele.
