Default I got my Paggi!

Thanks to venturabananas I am now the proud owner of Musa Paggi. It wasn't growing very well for Mark. He had it in a spot with a lot of shade and Ventura doesn't get a lot of heat. I'm hoping here in Long Beach it will be happier. I will keep you guys updated.

I'm hopeful and excited to try it. I have been told it has a slight lemon taste to it. So I think I will really like it since I like the subacid bananas.

It has a bit of a tang but sweet, but not too sweet. Like a bowl of blackberries is how I describe it. Get them as soon as they fall off of their own accord.

Default Re: I got my Paggi!

Hi all, I ended up planting in the ground a different pup that the one first pictured. This "pup" was about six feet tall. It originally didn't look very happy after the move. After a period of acclimating it started growing quickly. It has since fruited at about 7' PS. It produced a very very small bunch of bananas. I don't think this is normal for this variety. The largest pup it has produced is about 2.5' PS. It is growing strong and will hopefully flower next summer.

My Paggi made it through the winter fine. The lowest we got down to was 37-38 degrees. It has no damage. My Gros Michel on the other hand has brown spots all over its leaves. But it is in a more open unprotected spot. Paggi is about 40" tall PS now.

Paggi is growing strong! PS is now 76". I'll have to wait till next year for fruit. We are having a heat wave right now with a high of 96 today. So I should still get some good growth before winter hits.

How did you like them? I wish I could taste Paggi again. I cannot seem to grow bananas in my yard anymore. Some bacterial infection all over the area here it seems.

No fruit yet. My Paggi should fruit this coming summer. With the colder winter temps all my bananas stop growing.
