The is the first bunch of Misi Luki to ripen for me, and also the first bunch harvested in 2010! You might remember this bunch from the Misi Luki contest. Notice the early splitting. This is from the last rains we had and the little bit of warm weather since then.

Tomorrow my wife will help me harvest them but I think it will be a few more days until they are ripe enough to eat.

I cut another hand of Raji Puri--still green but starting to get a little yellow blush. They are the best tasting banana I have ever eaten--not that I have eaten a lot of varieties--yet.

I am glad I learned about cutting one hand at a time--I would hate to have to eat 59 naners in just a few days--even if they are the best.

They are not as astringent as store bought naners when they are firm. They have a mild tart flavor when firm.

I started eating the ripe SH 3640 :-) !!! They have excellent flavor! Some of my relatives made Pasteles and Alcapurrias with green ones when they first received them. They said that were softer than plaintain but they came out very tasty!

In that state of growth you should be able to peal, grind the flesh and make pastles! Congratulations!

What is the ideal time frame for harvesting PH.?

Interesting,lol, if I show this pics to average citizen in Croatia, with cooked bananas served with cheese, I have many reasons to belive that they would burn me as heretics in dark ages
