You were sold a banana plant; hopefully the fruit tastes good. This happens all of the time which is why I'm growing 11 mystery bananas although 7 of those came to me with ID tags. (Okay, I'm 99.99999% certain that the DC I purchased at Lowes is a DC.) Once they flower, I'll post pictures and hope to have confirmation or good guesses.

I have people asking me for pups. I would hate to give them pups and them not be true. Rude to be critisized and made fun of with no help with id.

Nobody intends to be rude but it seems that long time members sometimes get a little peevish about the ID issue presented by some newbies. The people who sold you the pup asked here for ID; for some reason it wasn't possible for expert members to do so. Apparently they chose to call it what they want (unless they found another source for ID) and are selling pups. I have given away 2 pups from my DC to neighbors who aren't concerned about the variety; I would never sell/trade or give away any others (including those I purchase or acquire anywhere) without explaining that mixups do occur.

This issue is not new to me. But experts can share opinion based on education instead of making jokes about people. I have never seen experts so rude on any other format. Taxonomy and mix up is nothing new. Everyone gets sick of it across all species. Not everyone insult people they offer diagnostic suggestion.

He offered no help to the original sell. Such as those don't look like it to me for the following reasons... He knowingly ignored the post then had no problem ignoring me so I could be his laughing stock.

I am not him so I can't say why he "made fun of you" or why he didn't reply. I raised figs for many years; it didn't take me long to realize how mixed up those are. Jaded and wiser when I took up collecting bananas I hoped for more clarity. Ha! It didn't take long reading this forum to know that you take a chance buying them even from established vendors. (Read up on Agri Starts.) What to do? I'm doing what I did with figs: grow what works in my area and bears a breba crop (not valid with musa) with excellent flowers and don't sweat "name brand" recognition. Can hardly wait for my 11 to flag.

I have a list and location of all my bananas. I am finding that I am putting question marks by several on my list. I do plan to from now on get my plants from an agristart supplier.

Well, don't buy an ice cream or Blue Java that way; buy from a member such as crazybanana. Agri starts TCs from a mother plant; if they have misidentified mother plant (which happens--heck even TARS has mixups), then GIGO.

If it's not a BJ or IC, it's a Namwah which many believe is a superior fruit. Did your source have pictures of fruit? I've been told that if it wasn't blue skinned, it's not real.

Stop crying, you're not a victim. I helped you on the very first day by pointing you in the right direction so you could learn that your plant was not and still isn't a SH-3640. You were the one being rude by not using the information to help yourself. It takes no special skills, just the willingness to do it, and it appears you prefer that someone else does it for you.

Although you probably won't admit it you're part of the problem, not the solution. There is nothing wrong with identifying the plant before you start distributing them, but too many folks don't want to do it that way and the problem just keeps getting bigger.



If you search you probably can find a thread with links to help identify your banana, or you can just keep complaining.

It's quite a problem with banana collecting unfortunately. I have probably 4 "Goldfingers" by now, none being the real thing and no idea what any of them really are. They're different from each other and different from anything else I have.

I've had issues with Agristarts, local sellers, online sellers, and even botanical gardens where you think they'd be pretty certain what they are growing and selling. And I have been part of the problem too, as I've sold pups from ones that hadn't fruited yet, trusting my source. I don't do that anymore, but it's annoying because they can put out many before fruiting for the first time and allowing a pretty definitive ID.

Bananas.org is like so many other forums. Please don't get too discouraged if you feel disrespected. Most here are happy to help and since many of us are just hobbyists, we don't mind whether we are considered authorities or not. I'm certainly not an authority on anything beyond my own yard (and sometimes not even that), though I'll give my opinion at times, especially when things seem pretty clear.
