There is almost nothing there, Richard. I do so wish that with all the experienced members here we would have a much more complete wiki, I am afraid it is not.

Apparently you're not familiar with the nature of volunteer organizations. Any further complaints and we'll shoot poison darts at you!

What I found in the wiki for Musa Gros Michel was a list of synonyms, the genetic group (AAA), a few photos and a sparse list of members growing the banana. Pretty good by my experience. For a bit more information, traverse to a page maintained by pitangadiego for banana cultivars with names beginning in G. If you scroll down there you will find further background.

As for the Gros Michael TC I obtained from sddarkman619, it is doing quite well. Here it is shooting up a new cigar leaf during a winter "storm" in my USDA 10b climate:

I am aware how they work. Usually you have a few people who are pretty diligent about filling things like the wiki in if they can.
I am not surprised there is near nothing about Paggi as few even know it exists, but GM is well known and liked so I expected more is all. As my Paggi grows and I learn things people want to know, like height at flowering and cold hardiness I will update the wiki. If one tenth the members here did that with just one cultivar... the wiki would be a storehouse of info for the world...

Would you trust that storehouse of info, given the widespread misidentification of varieties, etc.? I'm not arguing against making the wiki more useful, just pointing out the limitations.

Much of this information is available elsewhere. For example, flowering height is available from USDA ARS-GRIN for many varieties. For Paggi, which came into the hobby trade from USDA ARS-GRIN, it is listed as 11.6'. Gros Michel is listed as 15.5'.

I thought of that, and realize it would not be as complete or accurate as the govt website but better than nothing, I guess. Thanks for the info on Paggi as I googled it a few times and found only the one page with pics of the fruit and almost no other info.
Consequently, I added the info to the wiki.

Sddarkman, you da man. I got my Gros Michel and even after a couple weeks of leaving in the same container and (accidently) bruising the leaves, they are really robust and taking off. Got them in a nice soil mix now. Great bananas you sell, so much better to have a unique good tasting variety than the lousy ones sold in nurseries. You know your ****.

These are some other varieties that your manufacturer also has and was wondering if you'll get these ones in and sell online. Booya, would love to get em from you if you do!
