I wonder what the rate of reversion to Musa "Verdin" is from this cultivar, since--unless I'm remembering incorrectly--it's a mutation of that plant. Does such a thing ever happen in the field, PR-Giants? (You probably have more of these planted than almost anyone in the States and territories.)

I grow a ton of 'em and have only seen it happen twice in the past 20 years. I wouldn't recommend waiting if it's something you want.

"Brazilian. The fruit is subacid and of poor quality; it has little to recommend it as a dessert banana, and its acceptance in Hawaii seems to be a good example of the power of need and habit in influencing the demands of a market." - Norman Simmonds - Musa Hall of Fame
