Pinwheel information Musa Dwarf Nino

Hello,

I´m looking for information about Musa Dwarf Nino.
Does anybody know from personal experience at which height Musa Dwarf Nino fruits in container. What`s the maximum height of this plant?

Does it fruit readily? Did anybody get it to fruit yet?

I would be glad to get any information possible.

Thank you

DESCRIPTION:
This exceptional sweet, thin skinned baby banana produces a fruit about 3-4 inches long. It is a light-green plant that grows rapidly. (001) (010) One of the most highly esteemed bananas around the world for its exquisite taste and texture. The plant itself is also quite desirable from an ornamental standpoint with its narrow leaves which are a beautiful and unusual shade of green, and the black coloration in the trunk and leaf sheathes. The plant is also less vigorous than most other varieties needing optimal siting and exceptional care to produce the small bunch of tiny (3-inch) but delicious banana. (007) One of the world's most popular local bananas that has remained outside the international marketplace because of low productivity and poor shipping qualities. It is very sweet, with tiny hands of petite fruit born on a fragile slender plant. Best grown in part shade or morning sun. Tender. (009) One of the most highly esteemed bananas around the world for its exquisite taste and texture. The plant is very ornamental black speckled on the trunk and leaf sheaths. (063) [A] fairly slender plant that produces small heads of fruit of excellent quality. The pseudostem is heavily marked with tan and brown mottling and the leaves have an unusual fluorescent green color. It has moderate wind tolerance. (032) [G]rows tall and produces one of the sweetest ladyfinger bananas. Fruit is 2 to 3 inches long, thin skinned and plump. Stock should be harvested green because bananas are prone to splitting. The plant has slender leaves of a bright, almost glowing green color. [D]rought sensitive and does not produce large heads of fruit. (056) (FROM HONEY Description) One of the world's most popular local bananas that has remained outside the international marketplace because of low productivity and poor shipping qualities.

Planting to harvest is about 11 months under subtropical conditions. Unfortuneately, this cultivar is not well adapted to cooler temperatures. Not recommended.

Nino, will fruit at about 6' in a container . In my S.Fl. climate, in the ground, it took about 10mos. to fruit at a height of 8-9'. I don't know how it will respond to your conditions, but here it is a vigorous plant.

Thank you very much. Your answer was very informative.

Do you think Logee`s Dwarf Ladyfinger could be a Dwarf Nino, if you compare the Photos to your Dwarf Nino.

What a pity, because dwarf nino would have been available in Germany.

Nevertheless thank you very much for your quick reply.

Once a person has tasted a Nino banana, will never forget the taste. They are also called datile (dates) banana, because of their delicious sweet taste.
Loved them as a child and still do. They are delicious when fried in batter and also in an omelet for breakfast.

Brian, why do you say that? Do you have both? I'm just curious because I remember someone posted last year that Agristart's description for Dwarf Nino was the same as Logee's Dwarf Ladyfinger.

Yeah. That was me. And I still maintain that they are the same plant. Especially, with similar colorations, growing habits, fruit description, and interestingly, the flattening of the trunk when they are young making them look like the Traveler's Palm. Jarred posted a picture of his young Lady Finger that had a flattening at the base of the leaf petioles, and I thought I was looking at a picture of my own D. Niños. Unfortuantely, I'll have to wait another couple of years to show what my 2 Dwarf Niños would look like, because they are reduced to baby corms from being in a cold green house. Next winter, I'll put them in a much warmer section.

Loggee's must be buying all the Dwarf Niños from Agristarts because I haven't seen them available for a long time.

Yes, I do have both, and have fruited both plants. They are not the same! You don't have to look too close to see the difference. The Loges's fruits at 3' in the ground, or potted, and the fruit are longer, and not as fat as the Nino. Next time I get home,I'll try to remember to post pictures of both plants!

Is there a great deal of difference between the Nino and D. Nino ?
For instance,the fruit are crazy different with Orinoco and it's dwarf counterpart. Is size the only real difference with this one? tia

I gotta tell you guys that this is my favorite plant right now !
Mine is just over 6' to the tip of the tallest leaf with just under 3' of p-stem and it looks like a spiral staircase (double spiral staircase I guess) or some sort of giant round drillbit. Beautiful !
I can't wait to get a bloom .

I have pics but can't post em' right now...destroyed my laptop and I'm workin with a dino-puter .

Derail- Isn't that a great show? I just love it. Only problem is I usually watch the DVR recordings late at night after I get Mom to bed, and then I raid the kitchen after watching. And then I wonder where my belly comes from. Duh! LOL
