Mine is just now starting to take off and will go into the ground in a week or so. Look forward to seeing yours with fruit, Tony! Mine will probably have to get dug up in the fall since it's further behind.

That may be perfect timing to get fruit next year. I still have one in a pot I need to find and no open ground to plant it.

Here is a photo of the pseudostem and petioles of a young 'Cocos', a dwarf Gros Michel. Gros Michel cultivars are fairly distinguishable from others in most cases, they have very prominent open and spreading petiole canals with distinct red coloration, especially on the wings.

Yours may not look exactly like this, but if its somewhat similar then you most likely have a correct ID.

this plant does have open petiole canals but no red. The two pups came up further away from the main corm than I normally see for such a young plant.

Interesting.... The "Gros Michel" I got from justj has the open petioles but no red. The " Bluefields from the Hilo nursery has all of the above. I'll post some pictures later tonight.

Tony ... the FHIA 23 has Gros Michel " Highgate" in its lineage so it should have some of the same characterisics and much more desease resistant.

Here's the " Bluefields" from Hilo showing the open and red petioles Gabe mentioned:


The whole plant ( it's no more than a pup itself) in its 25 gal container:


.....and some new pups of its own:



Here's the " Gros Michel" from justj:

it does have the open petioles but no red and does have a redish line up in to the leaf bearing portion of the petiole much like a basjoo would??????? Let's hope for the best!

Shannon... the true Gros michel isn't a Cavendish variety but tastes way , way better and was the banana of commerce before being replaced by the Cavendishes we currently eat due to their disease resitance.

Gabe.... time to smuggle some var. Cocos out of the lab and get them to some of us who could better propagate the dwarf varieties!!!
