It's about 8' tall and has 2 pups. I had 60 mph winds this summer and it bent it over pretty bad so I had to prop it.

Great pic of the FHIA-17 in flower I have 2 of them in my back yard ..One has produced 4 pups and the other one is in "too much shade". They produce nice big pups . These are from TC so I'm hoping next year to see a flower on the bigger one .. And we had some crazy wind here this summer also. Pushed over my Manzana. I stood it back up! I think it must have stressed the mat because I got a bloom on a smaller plant and looks like another bloom is on the way on a larger plant .. No problem.... I like Manzana bananas most of all And I aint sharing

The one in the picture is from tissue culture as well. I bought it as a small plantlet May 2010. I planted it in the ground October 2010. It is a slow grower.

Hua Moa


Pisang Klotek


These are being grown in some marly lake shore soil. My house would have been in the near shore.

Nick, I thought the copper in the Kocide killed not only fungi, but also the bacteria in the Serenade. I guess that's not true?

I talked to the product representative and was told that this was not the case. Apparently it is a common mix.

Anti-disease. I will put a bunch bag on the fruit this week and the spray basically sanitizes the fruit. I haven't spent a lot of time determining the critical step, but I have noticed that when I deflower, spray and bag I have excellent fruit quality. I have deflowered and bagged and still had fungal rot on a few fingers so I figure the spray is pretty important. The two products I am using are certified for organic use.

Thanks for the info Nick. I guess it was an unsubstantiated rumor going around with the tomato maniacs who are always trying to stop fungal foliage diseases.

If you google kocide+serenade you should pull up some data on tomatoes. Apparently what you are applying is the toxin created by the bacteria, the actual live bacteria aren't very abundant.

Interesting. I had always assumed Serenade worked based on live bacteria. Thanks Nick.
