Default My Backyard Nana Plants, 2021

New year, tns of exciting stuff going to be happening in the backyard this year! Currently have nine racks of banana in various stages of ripeness, and a lot of trees still to flower. It’s going to be good


First of all, I planted SH-3640 High Noon in a full sun spot with plenty of mulch:





I also planted the real deal FHIA-2 Mona Lisa:





As well as the Green AeAe:





And the PR Morado which already has a pup:






Update on the Manzano:






Current bunches of bananas:


FHIA-3 Sweetheart:







Dwarf Namwa flowering:







Tall Orinoco:






Dwarf Brazilian:






Three Tall Namwa:








Raja Puri:





And I have a blossom end rotted dwarf Cavendish bunch not worth posting a picture of


Thanks for following hopefully more pics coming soon

Wow! Major crop. Congratulations.

Can you put together some comparison pics (profile, pstem, flower, whatever else looks interesting/different) with descriptions (height, circumference) of your RP and Dwarf Brazilian? You have them both flowering at the same time so would be great to get some comparison info. since these two are suppose to be quite similar.

Thanks BBJ!

PS What are those green things photo bombing the banana pics? Young papayas?

Thanks, all the work starting to pay off!


The Dwarf Brazilian flowered a lot shorter than its supposed to (stunted?) so the height factor won’t be accurate, but I’ll be happy to post pics comparing them!

Yes they’re papayas! I am eating the ones the papaya fruit flies aren’t

Great job Joe! Looking good.
The blossom end rot might be a result of low calcium. Or too much water, as calcium is absorbed when the soil is dry.
