Default Did anyone ever get a super dwarf to fruit?

I have never seen a picture of a fruiting super dwarf cavendish. I had one now for several years and it is about four and a half foot tall. Did anyone out there ever get one to fruit?

Someone here has posted a picture of a fruiting SDC. I have one about 4 feet tall that's been in the ground about a year now but no fruit yet.

Nice shots Gabe.

Mitchel-The fruit were pretty good but I have so many problems with that plant wanting to "choke". The key to avoiding that seems to be lots of heat when the bloom is coming out (something that is expensive to control outside of the tropics).

My goodness, Gabe - that looks like a Munchkin Nanner Plantation! I bet little kids would love to browse thru those! Really neat... Mine is young yet - can't wait for it to pup out!

Be well,
Mike

It does happen rarely! Here's one flowering in Nashville, TN in a greenhouse.
