OK, now I got it. You have one real deal "Blue Java" and all others are most likely Namwah.
And your babies are beautiful, too. Just not the real "Blue Java"

The large one is real. I have a real one from Encanto Farms as well. So far it seems like a very vigorous plant.

Great looking Plant! Anyone know if Going Bananas in Homestead florida sells the "real" Ice cream? I had one the past few years that I got there until it died this past winter. Do you think it was a real Ice cream or a Namwa?

I'm starting to think that the real ice cream is as rare to have as what Cali Gold was at one time.

I've tried Namwahs, and I like them a lot. I hear Blue Java isn't that great though, only really good as a frozen treat and for smoothies. Hey, it's nice to have the real plant anyways.

I'm sure the final taste depends on how you grow the nanner, soil, climate, ripening. Do you know anywhere online you can have exotic bananas shipped to your house?
