Default Looking for info on Tu'u Ghia

Hi all, I have searched this forum but I haven't found much information on Tu'u Ghia. Does anyone know how tall they get? I found a research paper that states they get 2-3 meters tall. So about 6-9 feet. Does that sound right? Also does anyone know how cold hardy they are or aren't?

Thanks,
Bill

Tu'u Ghia info/data from the USDA-ARS TARS Catalog of Musa Accessions....











Tu'u Ghia PDF Banana Description created by very experienced/expert forum member Rob (robguz24) SeaviewFarmsHI.com










There is a thread created years ago, in which mentioned Tu'u Ghia isn't cold hardy!.......'Tuu Ghia'.

Thanks for the great info. It definitely sounds like something worth trying. If anyone has pups available please let me know.

They are pretty hard to find right now. After I get a backup and a few going I will have pups. Hopefully by next year. Mine is really starting to pick up speed now! Fast grower! Being an AA I’m sure it’s not gonna like the cold!
