In San Diego, it is up there with Manzano, and Saba at about 14-15'. Also quite slender, so it needs propping. Nice bright-fruity flavor, not unlike Mona Lisa, but sweeter. Taste-tested very well at the Farmer's market.

Thanks Jarred, I also added under Wind that it has a very thin p-stem and might need propping during fruiting/flowering. Friend of mine that works at a nursery said a friend of his that's a banana expert said that it's one of the 5 best tasting desert bananas in the world.... also mentioned in that 5 Rajipuri, Ice Cream... I can't remember the rest he said. I'll have to ask again.
