[quote=Abnshrek;234273]Your time is up Fred? I thought that contraption was more accurate than that.. lol.. 2 weeks from cutting.. :^)

Your correct Sir:}

However; as I stated in another post, I didn't factor in the fact that you were going to try and ripen them in a Pink Room lol

I'd add 7 days according to my new pink room added calculation:}

Not an expert at all but they look like the platano burro/orinoco I have grown and eaten in California and from others growing it out here.

Did you have some already, how were they?

I don't know about that.. all I know is they both have 3 sides, but no Burro I've had tasted as good as the one's I grew, and they didn't get soft & squishy like Orinoco's get when they are fully ripe. Mine are 3inches shorter if not more.. :^)

I have had good luck and bad luck with that brand in your pic. When you get good ones and then you pick up bad ones it gets me mad.

For supermkt fruit like musa the best way to get no over ripe/rotten fingers with minimum bruises is to select the greenest ones. And break off fingers from the middle inside row of fingers on the hands.

Ripen at home at room temp. Eat when full yellow - -don't wait longer.

These bad boys were absolutely delicious, which a far cry from how a Burro tastes believe it or not.. These are as good or better than Manzano.. don't get soft or give you the gag reflex like burro may.. I should've taken a pic of when they got ripe.. :^)



Can you tell I just ate an Orinoco.. Whatever kind this is the banana's are great and much appreciation to Steve.. Its a keeper.. :^)

Eddie
I'm still waiting on my orinoco bunch to get ripe.. The one's pictured below are from Steve I picked up in July 2012. I don't know if its a suppose to be Ice Cream or something he picked up from a friend. I do know the stem's get 15' @ Steve's.. I had one fruit in Aug of 2012 that high winds knocked the flower off, since it didn't have much leaf support.
