As if I wasn't having enough issues... HELP
 
Anyone care to identify what is going on with my bananas now? I have an idea but want to get some other's input on this...
Note how the peduncle is black and the fruit isn't filling in, plus how small and dark the bell is... Not to mention what is happening to the leaves...






Note the pup's leaf... Leaves above and below are fine.


Note the disintegration of the leaves...


The one on the right with nearly disintegrated leaves is the one I cut. The brown center started about 3 feet up from the ground, above that it was normal. The new leaf was disintegrating, unlike all others where the older leaves are eaten up like the one in the photo above...

Never saw a banana do that. I would guess a fungus of some sort, but I really don't know.

This is the closest thing that fits the symptoms I have...

This is the only thing which worries me... The first paragraph under "similar diseases" in the following link states:

"In the absence of other symptoms, the leaf symptoms of Xanthomonas wilt can be confused with those of Fusarium wilt. In plants affected by Fusarium, yellowing and wilting of the leaves typically progresses from the older to the younger leaves. The wilted leaves may also snap at the petiole and hang down the pseudostem. In plants affected by Xanthomonas, the wilting can begin with any leaf and the infected leaves tend to snap along the leaf blade."

Mine die, one by one from the oldest to youngest on most plants, and bend at the place where the petiole meets the stem. The difference being the small black male flower and discolored peduncle and the look of the leaves that are still green, having browned edges and frayed looking. (Which are not associated with Fusarium wilt.)

In my research I found this very interesting article about things they are trying to fix the TR4 problem.. I agree that they should work on Gros Michel if they plan to make Genetically Modified bananas. Why waste time fixing up an inferior banana?
