Harvested a few. Very early frost caused them to pause. Seasons over sadly.

- Huge Musa Sweetheart in the middle.
- To the right and with the S shaped peduncle is an Immature mystery AAA direct from Cambodia Im hoping is Lakatan!
- lots of Orinoco
- lots of Cali gold
- lots of Veinte Cohol
- 3 huge Patupi bunches
- Agristarts Goldfinger
- Iholena Tigua
- Raja Puri
- Gran Nain

Been a busy year! Me and my boys are expanding again. Very excited about next year!

Would you up date us on the plant stats for: height & circumference at base/crown:

Cali gold
Veinte Cohol
Patupi
Iholena Tigua
Raja Puri
Gran Nain

My Gran Nain & 1000 Finger (9ft & 38") are huge now, but no bud. This would give me something to shoot for next year in size and knowing when the plant is ready to bud.

... Going to pour fertilizer & potassium out like it was water. (... to hell with guide lines, I'm going to write my own.)

Thanks Erik!!

I’ve had a taste of all of it i think. Some very good bananas!

FHIA 3 Sweetheart was good but not great. It has a insane lemon taste!
FHIA 1 Were amazing as always. They weren’t filled enough, but still amazing.
VC I’m so sick of VC after 13-14 bunches of VC I’m not sure if i will ever eat another lol.
Gran Nain was good as always. Not filled as good as last year.
Blue Java was AMAZING! very very sweet! And very creamy! No vanilla flavor though!
Raja Puri is good. Very fruity taste to me. Very tropical and sweet.

Iholena Tigua. These were fluffy for some reason? Same great flavor just fluffy like a cav? Why?? Sounds crazy but could they be over-filled?

And the WINNER!! By far is PATUPI! My new Favorite! Comparing to goldfinger they win. They have the classic “banana” flavor that i love times x100 wow! Texture is amazing! Not mushy at all! Almost “crisp”. They stay firm and don’t bruise easy. Amazing banana. I will have about 20 of these in the ground next year! I sent a few to a couple friends. I hope they report what they think about them here!
