Thanks.It's not going to do much. It only has two leaves ad the plant is shaded. I'm surprised it made it through the winter.

Musa MacKlayi is beginning to shoot.



For those that requested updates on how Musa Macklayi was progressing, thank you for your interest.

One of my Saba mats is beginning to shoot.


AStarts "MacKlayi" is not Musa macClayi, the bloom stalk is not erect.

Wow, that is short for dwarf Brazilian. I hope it makes good fruit. My buddy has several of them around his house and those that have put out a bud at that height never managed to fill out the fruits. The good fruits he grows come off 8-10' plants.

It's been a slow grower.

Default Dwarf Brazilian bloom, when to harvest?

You can see that some of the smaller fruit that appear to be cold damaged are turning yellow. Most of the other fruit seem somewhat plump and look like they're thinking about yellow... When do I harvest?

Really pretty fruit, with bright red splotches at each end.
