I agree with you, but as with many forums (or is it fora plural ?!) on the internet, the same questions have been asked over and over again, because new members are just too lazy to search for the answers which have already been given many times before, but might just be phrased slightly different.
I appreciate people like "Going bananas" who are really into it and read up whatever they can read, few cases though in my opinion where it is interesting to wake up threads from 5+ years ago unless there is something really new or game changing involved.

Fast bananas are from how you choose the sucessor pup..............I think...............


If you manage the Mat...............left just one pup per plant................the bunch come quick.....................

This Nanner is the fast variety I planted here.....................and it produces ten to dozen pups....................like crazy...................

But I just left one................the chosen pup...............



It grows very fast and produces the bunch in a period of a years...............



plus few months to the buch became ripe..............



This is the Nanner Mat..............




Another fast Bananas that I have is Prayng Hands...............but the Nanner is faster....................even the pups sprout and grows faster....................

But Praying Hands is a fast banana too..................

This is my Praying Hands.................



And its bunch...........




But..............I believe that pup pruning.........is the best way to get the bunch earlier...............

@harveyc, Did you get one of Jon's (pitangadiego) Kanderian (also called Tigua) with the 10-12 week ripening time, or did get the real Kandarin (also called Kandrian) from a different source?

I sent this to the starter of this thread privately, but thought others might find it useful too.. pasted in... Hi - I planted a bunch of pups in mid July 2014 and have been keeping track of how long to first bud ( not to the fruit being ready to eat ). 9 months = Raji Puri 91/2 months Cavendish, SH3640, 10months =Orinocco, Cavendish, Pitogo, Veinte Cohol, 10 1/2 months = Goldfinger, Dwarf Plantain; 12 months = Praying Hands, Namwa ( not Dwarf ). Hope this helps !! Sam
