Default Re: 2016 Thinning out my banana mats

I hear good things about the 3640... are they true? If so, I might be looking for one... I am waiting to get to taste some before planting more. Bananas are quite the investment in time, mainly, and space but I don't want to wait a year or maybe two to find out I don't really care for the variety. I may be already wasting space on one mystery banana...see here:



Some tell me Namwah, but I am pretty sure I have those already, and it's quite different... See Namwah here:



VC is one I am looking to taste as they are also short season and cold hardy, or so I hear...

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.

I assume you mean 3640... I hear they rival GM.. almost.. Are they more banana-ey or appley? How are they to grow? Short or long cycle? cold tolerant? etc... I see huge bunches in every pic of them I see. How tall?
Sorry. Just excited.

They are definitely something to be excited about. Not as sweet as Namwah, but also different than Mysore varieties like Pisang Ceylon. Certainly not an apple banana taste. I have not tasted a Gros Michel yet, so I have no comparison.
With normal care they grow easy, are taking colder winter temperatures well and recover quickly after a cold spell.
I have seen photos of nice sized bunches, too, but I am a little doubtful of the weight descriptions I have seen 😉.

VC is very short cycle and very cold sensitive. Not cold Hardy at all in my experience. They are more cold sensitive then even my gran Nain and cavendish types.

Not sure what you mean with "true" dwarf, but dwarf Namwah can get up to 10'+ (compared to tall Namwah 15' +) at flowering.
Dwarf Brazilian has fruited at around 6.5' for me ( no pups available as of June 27th 2016), the "Temple banana" fruits at around 7' to 8' (pups available).
All of my plants are in the ground with little to no protection during our mild winters, so height is not really an issue for me other than the occasional strong wind in late fall.

There are "dwarf", "standard", and "tall" Namwah (Pisang Awak) in circulation with pstem heights of about 6.5', 10', and 14' at fruiting. The fruits of the dwarf Namwa have a median length of 5" and diameter 1.25" while the tall Namwa fruits are on average 6.5" in length with median diameter 1.6".

All care and culture theoretically being equal, is there a difference in fruit production in the different sizes? Quantity and banana size?
