Default Biggest bunch this year-- FHIA 2 -- 46 lbs

Just cut down this bunch and the taste is fantastic. Good weight too. Have 8 more bunches filling in on just about every mat.



Fastest way to get the dogs in from the yard - yell bananas.

Mona Lisa. One of my favorites too. Although again mine from Agristarts look different than these do. Fruit on mine are much shorter, although the taste seems consistent with those from going-bananas in Florida.

It's the Mona Lisa and has been an established mat for about 6 years. The taste is knockout good good!!!!

Our weather has been perfect for all my stuff. The big Cogshall mango has a large flower panicle on almost every branch. Same with the big cado. Also the Mauritius lychee and the big loquat.

Have 8 mats hanging naner bunches and this looks like a great spring for fruit.

Good ol' Agristarts!!! When I bought this pup from Goin Babanas 8 years ago it was sold as Goldfinger FHIA 1.

That's the reason I was corrected by PR Giants in that my "g-finger" was really FHIA2.

Caveat emptor!!!!

If you need help eating them, remember you have hungry friends to the north.

Nice looking bunch, big fingers, too. What do they taste like? Pretty much Cavendish-y?

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.
