Default Misi Luki

Not a hint of color on Tuesday, but 4 hands look like this today.

Dean, Black felt, and a little touch up in Photoshop. If you start with black, even if it isn't absolutely black, you can substitute a complete black real easy. If you start with white or a light color, it is much more difficult to touch up.

Won't eat them for a couple more days, but Misi Luki is a very thin-skinned, very creamy banana with a light apple-cider overtone and finish. Definite winner. Good pupper, thick trunk about 9-10' tall - on the shorter end of the tall bananas. The skins are very soft, almost velvety, bruise very easily and turn dark within a couple hours of picking or handling, but does not affect fruit quality at all.

Thanks for the information. I guess it's more for a warmer climate. This is a new one to me.

Don't know about ultimate coldhardiness, but it barely looses a leaf here, even with consistently below average winter temps this year, and a low of 38F.

thanks for the good news Pitangdiego.
BTW I got me a lacatan and Kanderian from you last summer. Harvey picked them up for me. They are doing good in my backyard.

Looks good! The pup I got from you should bloom late this summer. We'll see how the fruit matures during winter.
