Looking good there, we have 2 FHIA in pots that never got in the ground this year. We put everything that is in pots in the garage today, went down to 34 last night and calling for a little cooler tonight.

Beautiful!

You mention she is "stout" (reminder to self: don't use it as a term in describing wife) and I wonder if you plan to support the fruit/plant. That's got to be getting pretty heavy.

Hi,

congratulations for your great FHIA-18 bunch! Happy harvesting!

Unfortunately the climate in Germany is too cold for such big bunches, but small bunches of dwarf banana varietes are still possible.

But I am purchasing a house with a large yard in Brazil in Lucianópolis. Then it will be my second home. I will travel one or two times every year to Brazil. In the future I will move to Brazil.

I will then harvest in Brazil big bunches like you too.

Best wishes
Basjoofriend

Thanks guys for the nice replies!

tlturbo,
It is basically some specific pups that were planted and given the best care and food that they could get.

Here is an update of The Fhia -18 with the 2x4's and propped.

Hi Greenie,

have you already tasted your bananas or are they still hanging outside?

I mostly grow Dwarf Orinoco and Dwarf Brazilian, but one of my favorite is a fhia 18 becouse of its fast growing speed.
It makes more leafes in a season than any other kinds I have.
I live in switzerland and have to dig them out for winter.
But only the look of this species makes my happy, and is worth the hard work.

How long did it take to mature?

Marcel
