Default My Backyard Nana Plants, 2020

Hello everyone, I have been wanting to make a constant-update type thread for awhile now, so here it is!


Just planted another section in my yard. Front to back: Raja puri, dwarf red?, dwarf cavendish, and a super dwarf.

My Tall Namwa mat just sent out a BEAST! This pup is huge! About a foot and a half away from the mother, with a caliper of three to four inches! Definitely not a water sucker lol










I broke the top off it and it grew half an inch in fifteen minutes!

Updates on everything!


The beast is growing well:







The raja puri has two pups:





And the 1000 finger has one:





I finally got around to planting sweetheart, double cavendish, and California gold:













These areas are doing REALLY good!!! Front to back: double cavendish, raja puri, dwarf red?, dwarf cavendish w/ three pups, and super dwarf.







Left side, front to back: Orinoco, 1000 finger, dwarf Brazilian.
Right side, front to back: tall Namwa, Pisang Ceylon, and dwarf namwa.
On the far right you can see the sweetheart. I will be probably planting two more plants there to finish the row.





Check out the beautiful p- stem on this mystery banana:








And the best for last: the tall Namwa bunches are maturing slowly but surely:










Thanks for looking!!!!

Fantastic! Great collection of banana plants.

BBJ, what's that vine-like plant you are growing under the canopy? Squash of some sort or watermelon? Will it grow after the canopy fills out (more shade)?

Thanks!

That is a calabaza squash (also pictured in pic #3 and #8) I am growing it as a ground cover (annual) till it eventually dies. By that time the cassava and other things growing there will take over.

I am not sure.... Never had the dwarf. The first tall namwa bunch is generally twelve feet @ the p-stem. The second tree is a little taller when it fruits. They can get pretty tall.....

I like tall banana trees! I'm already growing a dwarf from TC and if the fruit is any different it would give me an excuse to get one!

The only difference that I have heard in regards to fruit as I recall is that the tall namwa fruit is suppose to be "cleaner" whatever that means (fewer blemishes, dings, odd shapes, maybe?) and less chance of getting a corky center. I have encountered some corkiness in my bananas (tall nawmwas) but its a pretty rare thing like 1 in 250 bananas for me. Flavorwise and individual finger size they are suppose to be the same.
