Default List of bananas that have extra-large/ large fruit:

I'm desiring to compile a list of banana varieties that produce extra large to large fruit. Could anybody help me out? Could you mention the:

1.) variety
2.) size of fruit (inches)
3.) number of fingers
4.) number of hands

Thank you all so much!

Default Re: List of bananas that have extra-large/ large fruit:

In addition to differences among varieties, parts 2-4 also depend on climate and growing conditions, so information from people growing bananas near you will probably be most representative of what you can expect.

The one I grow that makes the largest fruit in my yard is Monthan.

1. Monthan
2. 6-8" but very fat, averaging 300 g per fruit.
3. Around 100
4. Around 10

Large as in weight or length?
Hua Moa are 5 to 9 inches in length and can weigh more than a pound. Usually you have a 25 lbs bunch with 25-35 fingers. It is often considered more of a plantain but I sell tons of it to people who eat them ripe and raw

FHIA 17 are usually 7-9+ inches in length and larger fruit approach 200g. Bunches are large with 10+ hands being normal. 150 fingers on a 50 lbs bunch would be standard

From studies I've read, the Fhia-02 outperforms the Fhia-17 in the subtropics.

Which subtropics?

I did a quick review and I see in Brazil it did better than FHIA-17, but in South Africa it did much worse.

There are also many studies in Asia.

Best wishes. Whether they will actually produce large fruit in zone 9 is another question. Typically we're talking about zone 12.
