Its a long shot but I think it should be able to ripen one or two hands max. Its got one good leaf, green pstem, great location, and seven months of good weather ahead of it. Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion!!

So my Mona Lisa (FHIA-02) decided it was a good time to bloom. Image 1 is huge flower and image 2 is 10 days later. About 8 hands so far! Just planted it in July last year so about 10 months to flower. 3 nice pups so far (well, 2 now that I gave one away).

Well done!

I really like the fruit of this variety, but I think it likes the climate in Florida a lot more than the climate of southern California! I've grown it for years and is very slow and not very productive for me. I'm growing it in a better spot now, so maybe that will make it happier. I hope so.

I've just got to tell someone, I'm going BANANA's. I cut down the plants to about 3ft and heavily mulch them for the winter. Here it is June and one of the plants has thrown out only a flower. I've got it supported and have been watching it bloom. There are 4 hands on it, not sure if any more will come forth. The bananas are 3-3.5 in and the florets are beginning to dry and drop off. What do I do next...I'm hoping they continue to mature - possible ripen into edible fruit. Any advice on nurturing them further or do I just wait an let nature take it's course. I did get 15-5-30 and will start with that tomorrow. I live in South County (AA) Maryland and have no idea of the banana variety I have. At peak height they get about 5-6ft and can be 4-6in in diameter. Posted some pics under Banana Flower Gallery too. Wish me success.

He didn't make it and doubt it was a dwarf brazilian. Maybe a Raja Puri or something else. Way too short for a dwarf brazilian but next year should get a better chance to ID.

Congratulations to Hdynad on the great looking Pitogo and success in TX!

My velutina has 3 hands with 3 nanas each. These are the plumpest fruits I've ever seen. Seems like I finally got the timing right for growing in zone 6!!!

Thanks!

I had a flower previously that was straight up - on the mother plant. I guess this one just wants to bend down like a regular banana....

The plant has maybe 3' of Pstem and isn't a very thick stem. Perhaps it can't support a vertical flower for such massive fruits!
