Hmmm...interesting indeed. Thanks for posting that, caliboy1994. That looks to be right to me. I kind of wondered about that myself. The nursery where I got it called it dwarf so that's why I did too. It's a good healthy plant though and I'm thrilled it is finally fruiting.

You're welcome. But if you live in windy SoCal like me, Dwarf would probably be the better choice.

Ha ha ha I dont know what these are It's my third time this mat produced fruit . They are all different sizes .. the soil on that side of my house just dont seem to support bananas . But this time I used a lot of compost and cow and horse manure plus fertilizer. They seem to be close to removal, just now starting to get a little lighter in color it bloomed in mid January

My Sucrier is finally flowering after almost 3 years. Apparently this is also known as Pisang Mas.

The leafs are green top and bottom , bottom is not a high green as top, a little red in the stem .. PS is green ...
the bananas taste great from that thing SWEET.. I freeze them for smoothies and eat some fresh.. last time they tasted different than the first bunch and they were lots smaller ! But they are almost as good as my Apples .. I figure this year Ill get the soil completely built up over there and all will be well .. Ill re-test the PH in the fall after some more time has past

I was going to rip out my Saba mat as it was only flowering in late fall and any winter freezes would destroy the fruit. It is a huge beautiful mat that produces no fruit. It has now sent out another shoot that will have time to mature in warm weather. This is its last chance.

At last!! My Ae Ae is pushing a bud. The p-stem is about 10 1/2 ft, and it has 10 pups. It only had 9 after I traded one to Gabe, but is has pushed out another one to take its place. I have waited anxiously for this baby to bloom.

Congratulations! Great looking plant, Nobby. Right time of the year too, for it to happen.

I wasn't sure who Nobby was until I remembered I added that pseudonym Nobby D. Holme (say it 3 or 4 times fast and you'll get the joke).

Hey Knobby ------- what are your plans for the fruit?

Mine is at 8 ft now and really kicking from the kelp injunctions.

I will probably divvy it up among my wife's relatives, and then there are about 5 others wanting to try it. It's odd that I should have this one; my wife is a direct descendent of the chief from the area where Kamehameha was born in Kohala, on the island of Hawaii. They would have actually been permitted to grow this banana if they had lived back then.

My wife will probably use it as a 'cooking' banana, but I'd like to try at least one ripe un-cooked one as a comparison. Of course, at this stage I have little idea how large the bunch would be. I wouldn't expect much since it is the first one to fruit from that batch.

What is the caliper of the fruiting pstem at 1 ft up from the ground?

Plantain chips, or tostones, from totally unripe is a great way to go. Then you can eat ripe ones later.

Personally, I say "yuk" - a cooking banana is a cooking banana. Those members that said they like ripe Orinoco made me queasy talking about it. People who grew up with eating these, like me, don't break the rules.

A goofy expression I made up is "Yo me embarfo" since I understand but don't speak Spanish.
