You are doing a awesome job with your 'Nanas!....It is showing off!.....
I don't have a SH-3640 (yet), but do have the other 3. And, thanks to TY, I have added a 3 VC's to my collection.

Thanks for the compliment!

Update, this morning I cut the 1st hand off, 54 days after bud showing. I know the hand could get little fatter & ripen on the stalk, but I believe it was plump enough to ripen in the kitchen. This would help the lower hands to fill quicker before a freeze. The 2nd hand is near the same size as the 1st; and I may cut it next week.

Orinoco bunch 1 & 2 are covered with plastic bags for the past week. This was to warm the bunches during the low 70° days. ... A freeze is not in the forecast for the 14 days. But, this coming Monday night the low is expected to be about 36° ; then temp will be back to low 50° at night until the end of the month.

Pictures:

Orinoco 1st Hand: The 7 finger hand weighs 2lb 6oz. The fingers measure 1 3/4" to 2" across the flats (not the ridges). They are as big as I've ever seen or eaten Orinoco nana.
