Anyone have a time to flower list?

Thanks Richard. Do you have the heights for Gros Michel Lowgate and Highgate? I think Lowgate is the shortest of the Gros Michel Dwarfs.

Subtropical height? I assume zones north of subtropical will fruit at a shorter height.

I know this is a dwarf list thread but alot of talls are on the list and according to Going Banana's White Iholena is shorter in height than a Red Iholena instead of vise versa.. I couldn't tell you since both of mine are the same height roughly (over 7' of p-stem).. both Red & White Iholena..
