Are there "Blue Java" plants out there that aren't true to type?
I have one that I bought as a TC and another that came from a reputable farm supply store, they both appear identical in growth habits and leaf type, no fruit yet.

Thank you

I'm on the west coast.
I got one from that Ted fellow at Green earth publishing and another from Harmony Farm Supply in Sebastapol.
I think Green Earth grows out TC plantlets and Harmony got theirs from an outfit in Monterey IMSMC

Thank you

Thank you
Ted does sell TC's and it is probably the right Ice Cream.My original came from Lowe's or Home Depot and I'm pretty sure it's not Ice Cream.The one's I got today were from Quail Gardens and are most likely Ice Cream,anyhow they are different than the Lowe's IC.

Tony,

One sure way to tell if a naner is a Blue Java is check out the roots after it's potted for a year. Unbelievably huge dense mass of thick roots. My Dwarf Orinocos are like that. They bulge and split open the pot when pups develop.

It's a real pain to clean out the dirt and trim roots for shipping on the DO. I'm not planting the BJ, just repotting it for someone who wants it - locally.

Don't grow real tall ones any more cause of the wind. The Saba is laying on the ground ---- AGAIN ----after PM storm winds last week.

All I can say is yours look exactly like the one I got from HD.red outline on the leaves. The ones I picked up yesterday do not have the red outline or any red, pink on the petioles.
