I cut one hand of the Raji Puri that bloomed in July, I will let it ripen indoors.

To me the Goldfinger were better than the Ice Cream

The day before Christmas eve I harvested my SH 3640 bunch so I could distribute them to family at Christmas!



I wish you all a prosperous New Year with lots of bunches! :2239:

They are still green yet, it may be a week before I can answer that question.

Ice Cream

I see some splitting there, and I'm thinking that heavy rain just before a bunch ripens causes this. My last bunch of Hawaiian Apples started splitting even before cutting the bunch, but I have found that if you separate the hands it will slow down the splitting.

There is a lot of splitting and we had the heavy rains a couple of weeks ago.

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
Yeah, it seems like in the summer when there is no rain my fruits never split. Cutting the bunch before they ripen on the plant might help some too.

I can't wait to try them also. I should have a flower(s) in the spring!

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
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.

It is cutting off time, right?
Waiting for a taste report :ha:.

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. :drum:

sbl 01-02-2010 08:23 PM

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
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.

conejov 01-02-2010 10:35 PM

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
what do the raja puri taste like?

sbl 01-02-2010 11:02 PM

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
They are not as astringent as store bought naners when they are firm. They have a mild tart flavor when firm.

Caloosamusa 01-03-2010 09:57 AM

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
:2200: 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!

The fruit ended up being only 3" long.

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
How does it taste and what sort of texture does it have?

sunfish 01-13-2010 02:54 PM

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
A little tart and creamy.

In that state of growth you should be able to peal, grind the flesh and make pastles! Congratulations! :2239:

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
What is the ideal time frame for harvesting PH.?
I am boiling a couple right now anyway ... comments about it flavor and texture of the fruit are always positive.

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
Nicely done Emily, the time scale from fruiting til the fruit was ripe is laso interesting. Thanks for pics and info.

SoBe Musa 01-21-2010 02:45 PM

Re: What did you harvest today bananas
 
Love it !it kind of taste like a plantain that I try in south America in a trip call by the locals “Topocho”
