They're ornamental seeded bananas, but the flesh is supposedly edible.

I'm not growing them, but I was going to. They were selling them at a local nursery, but I couldn't buy them. They're really small plants, and they can flower in a single season. If you bring it outside in the spring, you'll probably have a flower by late summer to fall.

It must be the tropical climate, but you can grow the thickest bananas I have ever seen. 55mm is huge for a morado. In the trial at Isabela, the morado only registered a diameter of 38.8mm. You got something special going on there.

Maybe it's the type of grass I use, just kidding.

55 mm was the first, 57 mm was next, there might be some bigger but I don't want to keep changing photos.

On another thread someone posted info about an 8 inch red, now that has to be like a small football.

How big are the bananas on a Cuban Red?

38.8 can't be correct, 55 mm is more than double that size.

Do you have a link to that Trial, I'd like to know more about it.

Actually I grow all my bananas with grass, that's all I use no other fertilizer.

Not only are they edible, but in my opinion they are the best and sweetest

banana I have ever tasted.

I'm aware of your growing techniques Keith. I was joking about your/Nicholas's posts in the "this is what happens when u don't remove pups" thread. I thought your joke was funny. I'm confused now, are morado seeded or not?

I'll post a photo of the flesh.

The photo is at the top with the others.

Brady, thanks for spelling my name correctly.

I changed it to my initials after some people butchered it.

GRIN Observation Data for TARS 17148


Fruit in the last hand was 38.8mm, while in the 3rd hand it as 40mm. And that seems very much in line with what I see with the morados here in Florida.

They are beautiful bananas that taste better than they look.

I would recommend to anyone in an area that can grow red bananas to do so.

My bunch has been on the plant 3 months now. They are not as fat as yours by a long shot. The weather here has cooled off now so maybe another month and they will be ready.

They look about the same as mine did at 3 months and should get fat in the last 10 -12 days.

I think most people harvest them too early and miss out on the extra size and flavor.

I always try to wait until one splits.

We had 3 or 4 inches of rain the night before mine split, so I was pretty sure they would be ready the next day.

I hope you are fortunate to get plenty of rain in early January.
