Per my untrained eyes your nino looks very similiar to my patupi. Are they related? Both go to AA or something? Didn't find much info. on nino in the wiki or online during a quick lookup.

Donald,



This are pictures of Musa Niño from The TARS Catalog!.....


Common Tall Niño (Niño Común).......





Dwarf Niño (Niño Enano)......





Both Musa Niño Varieties are original from Malaysia and Musa Patupi is original from PNG (Papa New Guinea)....They might look similar, but they are different Musa cultivars....As you stated, Both Niño Varieties and Patupi belongs to the AA Genome Subgroup!....They are fast growers!....But very cold sensitive!.....




Hopefully it helps!....

Hector I am just amazed at how big and beautiful your bananas are, WOW your Sweetheart, when mine grows up I want her to to be just like yours! Tell me your secret, seriously Hector do you talk to them every night or give them a snack before bedtime, hehe . Mine is so small, she is healthy just doesn't grow very fast.
Always love your pics!
