Thanks, I don't have any info. other than what I have observed. It is a stocky. strong, dwarf, form of Datil that I am growing. It is definitely wind resistant, I have plenty of that here. It produces fruit at 5' to 6' and in my climate, the rate of growth is pretty fast, from pup to flower in about 5 to 6 mos. Most of the bananas I'm growing are for fruit consumption, and this is no exception. I'm still evaluating this one for fruit quality and taste. I've had this variety for a couple of seasons but have moved the entire mat , potted it up, then replanted in another spot.This will be the first year that I get to try a bunch of quality fruit!

I"d have to guess the leaf height at 12'. I have a friend who is an exotics collector, and he has been kind enough to share some of the plants that I'm interested in.

All I can find on the datil is that it is another name for lady finger. Can you confirm this nanaman or tell us if it is otherwise.

Copied from an article found online

1.3 Varieties of Banana

Edible bananas are classified into several main groups and subgroups. Simmonds placed first the diploid M. acuminata group 'Sucrier', represented in Malaya, Indonesia, the Philippines, southern India, East Africa, Burma, Thailand, the West Indies, Colombia and Brazil. The sheaths are dark-brown, the leaves yellowish and nearly free of wax. The bunches are small and the fruits small, thin-skinned and sweet. Cultivars of this group are more important in New Guinea than elsewhere.

Here belongs one of the smallest of the well-known bananas, the 'Lady Finger', also known as 'Date' or 'Fig', and, in Spanish, as 'Dedo de Dama', 'Datil', 'Nino', Bocadillo', 'Manices', 'Guineo Blanco', or 'Cambur Titiaro'. The plant reaches 25 ft (7.5 m) in height, has a slender trunk but a heavy root system that fortifies the plant against strong winds. The outer sheaths have streaks or patches of reddish brown. The bunch consists of 10 to 14 hands each of 12 to 20 fingers. The fruit is 4 to 5 in (10-12.5 cm) long, with thin, light-yellow skin and sweet flesh. This cultivar is resistant to drought, Panama disease and the black weevil but subject to Sigatoka (leaf spot). It is common in Latin America and commercial in Queensland and New South Wales.
