You have plenty of summer left to cut them from the mother plant and get the root base stabilized before you'll have to bring them in for the winter... Or you can leave them until spring...

That's a super dwarf cavendish. They'll always stay rather tiny in size and for fruit, are pretty picky with temps and take a long time. I find those even way up here in the Pacific Northwest sold as general houseplants. You can remove the pups whenever you feel they're big enough to safely remove without accidentally killing them. I usually wait til they are at least 2 feet tall, leaves included. By then they have their own roots, and aren't just a growth on the side of the mother plant. But yours being an SDC, I'd remove them pretty much once leaf #4 is developed.

I found this wonderful piece of information a few years ago when I got back into banana life... Kind of a Bananas For Beginners guide... It was written by a lady named Sandy who owns a nursery, and she has been known to post here...

As far as age, it is really impossible to tell... Bananas react so differently to different growing conditions...

I bought a Dwarf Cavendish from a local nursery in April, re-potted it, and placed it in a nice, sunny spot... It proceeded to grow from about 12 inches to about 30 inches in four months... I went back last week and bought another DC banana that came from the same shipment, and it was about 16 inches tall...
