Default Musa "Rose"

Hey y'all!
I recently have recieved a few pups of Musa "Rose", I was wondering what everyone's experience has been with this variety, and what the best way to care for them would be? I've heard that they pup a lot, yet also have sensitive roots, how often do you all prune and sucker? How can I get them to produce a decent sized bunch?
Thanks!

They pup a lot. They have tough roots. Fruit is always very small. Tastes like a red banana and has nice reddish ribs on the leaves. Great Ornamental. Good eating, though you don't get much.

Ditto what Jon said. Beautiful as an ornamental but makes too little of too little fruit to be worth growing for fruit.
