we've been letting them ripen on the bunch and cutting them when they're nearly yellow. I took 25 of them to the farmers market and sold them last weekend, and took some cut up to a master gardeners meeting the other night. They taste different and the plant looks different from my ice cream, which I guess they are saying since it came from agristarts 6 yrs ago is probably a namwah too. I think this one is a ladyfinger or something different than namwah unless there are different types of namwah. it has topped out around 9 feet, and the "ice cream" goes to around 10 with a different shaped banana.
