Default Tigua and SH-3640

Well, I have planted a Tigua and an SH 3640 at the house along the ditchbank. My plan is to update this once a month.

You will love these 2 varieties Nick! They are 2 of my favorites. My opinion is the sh3640 has commercial potential! Let me know what you think after a cycle or 2. They are amazing producers and the fruit quality is is very good. I don’t meet many people who dislike the “pome” like taste it is simular to.

Good luck! I hope you love them as much as I do!

This is my second shot with SH-3640. There was some debate over whether the first one was actually SH-3640, but it matched up well with the descriptors and pictures. It was the prettiest banana I had produced, but was very bland. We shall see if this one is any different.
