Default Musa 'FHIA SH3008'

Hi there guys,

I just looked at this wonderful plant and was amazed. However I couldn't find any more info... it looks like if there's no info on the whole net, so I would like to ask you. There's some basic info as to origin, color and so on, but I would be interested in knowing wheteher it's cold hardy or not, if yes, then what is it's down limit, if it has edible fruits (seedless) and many more.

Is it just ornamental or not. BanaWiki is quite unclear about this one.

Anyone, who can contribute, thanks.

It is not listed on the MGIS database site either, but you will find it in the literature from time to time. For more information about FHIA-named bananas, see the discussion at ENCANTO FARMS Varieties Information, E-F

I am going to assume that it's edible, considering that the goal of the FHIA banana program is to develop new crop producers.

Assume is not enough, but I appreciate it

I would call, but since I'm from Europe, it would be quite costly, so I'm asking you, who can call them ...

Jack, this is all their webpage says.

SH 3008 - Bred in the Honduras Research Station. It has beautiful large leaves with maroon under side and splotched maroon and green on the top side of the leaves. Resembles the Zebrina/Sumatrana except larger and fuller. Height 6 ft.

You can get on the site and e-mail for more info, that way you can ask for the specific info your looking for. Hope this was of some help.

goingbananas@bellsouth.net is their e-mail for Questions.

Has anybody fruited one and tasted it yet, or is it just ornamental?

When I visited Going Bananas this summer, I remember Don mentioning they had received at least one, maybe a few ornamental types from FHIA a long time ago. Perhaps this was one of them. In a breeding program such as FHIA's, they would be creating many different plants all of the time, and some maybe were ornamental enough that they were minimally distributed for that use.

I'm bumping this tread. So far apparently this banana is dwarf (6ft) and beautiful, and it can be assumed as edible (since it comes from FHIA). Anyone has any idea on hardiness and ripening time?

Pan --- Generally speaking bananas with a lot of red in their makeup are too tropical for even me to grow. They will be damaged by mid 30's temps. I got my Sumatrana x Gran Nain from Going Bananas 6 years ago and it just fruited for the first time. May remove it soon though as I just recieved a few new cultivars that I hadn't planned for. Like Williams, Njali Poovan, tall and short ARH's and Morado.

Thank you for the suggestion.
I have been staying away from reds till now, and no doubt i will remain away from them till the day i'll live in a tropical country. But i wondered, look aside, what this hybrid actually is. It looks interesting to me, but you know, as northern grower i'm forced to find interesting everything wich stays small, ripens fast, and is realtively cold hardy.
Good luck for your new plants, i hoped to experiements with some new plants too this year, but maybe i'll be forced to change my plans.

You should be able to grow the Viente Cohol banana. It is very short cycle. And if you plant a 3 foot pup after last frost date you stand a good chance of having fruit in the same year. I am growing this one for the first time this year as an experiment.
