Default Dole #4236 Reds????????????

OK I could just Google it BUT where's the fun in that. I bought some of these from a Mexican fruit stand and they are pretty good. Anyone know what we would call these?

Anyone growing them?

Anyone else seen them in the stores?

From our search engine
Bananas.org - What's in a PLU?

"Morados or Macaboo bananas"

Ok thanks Gabe and all,

I want to grow this banana. I read that it is cold sensitive and wiki said z8-9. I live in 8b/9a. So what are my cahnces of sucess. For this banana I am willing to protect in the winter. I am thinking that I should grow the dwarf red.

Is anyone else growing this banana in my area? I consider the taste of this one to be dead on for what I want.

Mine would freeze back to the ground every year, so I have been removing it. If you are about to protect it you may get fruit.

Which one were you growing and are you 100% sure it is what it was represented to be?

Are any of the corms small enough to ship and would you consider that?

Send a PM if you wish.
