Hi Keith,

There was thread some time back that discussed this plant. Here's the link

http://www.bananas.org/showthread.php?p=3682#post3682

Mine are still doing well, no blooms so far but they look like it might not be too long.

Thanks Richard, I think I will give them a try - I just can't figure out exactly what variety this is.

I'm not sure what variety it is either. It does have a fair bit of black on the pseudostem but other than that there are no distinguishing features. I'll let you know if I can ID it after it fruits.

My two are doing great, growing fast.
Surely there'll be a ton of feedback on these within the next year or so.

They sure did!
They were sold out right after they became available, thats cool you were able to order one. If I didn't get two the first go, I'd be getting another.

My two are showing the black on the pseudostem as well.
One of mine just unfurled a leaf that has a small bit of red splotching.

Found this photo lying around. Here they are, shortly after they arrived. I think I had just potted them up here.

Well now one of my two Dwarf Ladyfinger is growing on a single plane, like a travellers palm.

I am almost certain it's regular "Dwarf Brazilian" (Prata Ana/ Santa Catarita Prata). Sometimes brazilian bananas are referred to as "ladies fingers", along with plenty of other cultivars. If there is a little pink underneath where the black stuff is, then I am sure it's dwarf brazilian. I am also looking at the bell of the inflorescence on the vendours photo. Looks very brazilian to me.

All the names given to various banana-cultivars is making me rip my hair out, but at the same time it's exciting when you get the puzzle together, almost like solving a mystery with scooby-doo & friends.

For example, I am trying to find out what the heck "Walha" is. The clues so far: Indian variety, associated with Rajapuri on one of Gabes' fact-sheets, and said to be in the "Pome" subgroup on Inibaps pages. Scooby-dooby-doo, where are you...

Hey Jarred, how's the travelers palm looking (logee's ladyfinger) , is it still growing on a single plane? I got mine a couple months after you did, here's the latest pic.

There hasn't been much feedback on this. Is it fruiting yet for anybody? Or will it be another year? Does anyone have a pup they'd like to sell?

It's cool how this thread popped up again recently, because mine just started to fruit about a week ago! I purchased this from Logee's in November 2006 and figured I'd see if it would fruit in a pot as advertised. Height is 3 feet;

Brian, you have an updated photo to share? How big do you expect these fruits to get? As we discussed by PM a while back, I ordered when temporarily out of stock but they processed my order last week.
