One could hope! I've had some difficulties with my Blue Java, so Namwa will be a welcomed variety.

Pisang Klotek that I got from member CountryBoy over in Baldwin County. This is the original that I received from him and planted out into the field as a pup in July 2019. Its only about 8' of pstem and has almost been eclipsed by a pup that is only four months old. Can't wait to taste this banana!

I think you'll love it. With great reluctance, I got rid of it because it was too tall to manage in my yard. It was my favorite for flavor.

For me, it fruited at 14-16' of p-stem typically, with leaves way above that. That could have been OK, but it always needed to be propped to avoid collapsing, and I found it too tricky to fit props that tall in my garden.

Updates and additions!!!!


Pitago and 2 Dwarf Brazillian hands are maturing nicely. Now Blue Java. flower and banana pics. with 2nd flower emerging. I also have not 1 but 2 Sweetheart flowers, heavy and over 15 inches long! Beautiful ornamental Lateral Bronze 1st time, beautiful orange flower!!!

Worried with Hurricane Laura fast approaching, my poor Blue Javas are already leaning which is their normal growth pattern. With the winds coming Blue Java and the large Sweetheart flower just opening has me worried., i have them staked so we will see how they all fare.

on a different note the Namwah bunch harvested was some of the best i've tasted, froze a bunch too!

happy growing all,

Darla

My Saba finally bloomed! I planted a pup about 16 months ago. Don helped me select the pup on a 20 ft. mother plant at Going Bananas.... It was already 3 feet tall then. Its now 16 feet tall, and the base if 45 inches. I understand they take a while to mature so I'll need to figure out some recipes by next March.

Sorry for sideways photos... no matter what I do (file type, size, etc.) they sometimes just post sideways.
