Default 1000 fingers taste report

TEXTURE-somewhat like a Cavendish, a bit mealy, but not unpleasant.

FIRMNESS-Firm, makes the banana good and chewy.

SWEETNESS-Very sweet, not as sweet as a sucrier.

TARTNESS-Some tartness, enough to notice, but not as strong as in a DB.

RIPENESS-Yellow with a bit of green on the pedicel and some brown on the peel. Fruit wasnít as ripe as I thought it would be given the color of the skin.

FLAVOR-Sort of a bit of everything. A bit like a Cavendish, but more tangy and a hint of brown sugar.

OTHER-Skins are thick and banana is difficult to remove from the hand.

OVERALL RATING-8. I could eat these every day. I didnít know what to expect with these, as some descriptions seem to suggest they are more ornamental but happen to also be edible. Iíd say itís worth growing for the fruit. Very pleasantly surprised!

SUGGESTED USE-eating out of hand. Good to travel with, as it has thick skins which keep the fruit from getting damaged easily.

Thanks for doing this. Not only is it great reading now, it's great reference material going forward.

It's good to know that the fruit is tasty if one has the patience to peel a bite at a time

Rob,

Thanks for that very valuable report!

I find the taste of this reputed AAB is somewhat reminiscent of bananas of the "Silk" group.

I'm testing them on clays with high water tables and effective soil depths of about 1 foot. I'm very impressed so far.

Can anyone tell me if s/he has noted heritable differences in different clonal lines of this variety (1000 fingers/pisang seribu)?


sincerely

shannon

I've never tried it nor have I ever seen the plant for sale. Would if I could get my hands on it. Ordered one years ago from Aloha Tropicals. Like 90% of what they sent, it was something else.
