Default Bananas in our gardens

I created this thread for us to post pics in. I believe it will make the pictures more enjoyable and of course, easier to look at...
My garden to come soon, when there's actually some bananas high enough to take pics of.

Considering the influence of Black Sea in your region, what minimal temperatures are there in your area? Most of the Ukraine was designated as Dfb zones in Koppens maps and the southern part mostly Dfa (my zones). However Sochi is a subtropical paradise down there, so I'm confused. It's just a sea walk from you. You state zones USDA 8 to 10. I haven't seen such a span, what shoul I imagne under that?

Jack, indeed Black Sea make our climate much milder than in most part of Ukraine, and as in other part of Crimea it create micro-climate which is specific to our only region. Unfortunately we live on flatland, and don't have any mountains, forests or even hills nearby. So when we got Northern winds our air temperature may drop significantly for short time but later return under influence of Black Sea and Sea of Azov.
It's shame but I've never heard of Koppens classification, is there any resource online to see these maps freely?
Also Sochi have unique placement which seems to grant it such almost tropical climate, in our country similar position have Yalta which have very mild winter.
Regarding my city it have hot summers upto 40 Celsius in shade sometimes and most winters are mild and I agree with average temperatures listed here: Kerch, Ukraine - Sunrise, sunset, dawn and dusk times for the whole year - Gaisma (you can check this link and compare to your own climate to see if it's colder or not).
But sometimes we get -10 C for week or more and year ago we got one of the coldest winter for 50 years I think, it was -29 Celsius and also for almost week(surprisingly we had a lot of snow so nothing was damaged in garden, only some cactuses died on my balcony).
But the worst thing is our winter are most of time snowless:P

Nice one Ante. I don't have so much coloring on my pups as you do, I have just scarse spots (8th leaf). Interesting. In the end maybe we have different types of Dwarf Cavendish.

Who knows.
I think it is because of stronest sun influence.

Maybe, I'm also suspecting the origin, the banana I got it from (our botanical garden) was not a TC, it comes from almost 70 years old generations bred in the greenhouses. Maybe it's a lil bit different. No TC all right.

Btw. Ante, your Cavendish is closing to fruiting time, so the more leaves he will have, the better. Also, I would try a little bit larger container, you want lots of fruits, right...

Maybe it will fruit before that. It just occured to me, because the mother plant that I got my Dwarf Cavendish from was fruiting at this height already.
Maybe because it was a in the greenhouse? But it had about 11 leaves and there were about 80 fruits on that, long about 13 to 15cm. Some idiot tried to steal it and run away, but they caught him. He took it long before it could have ripened. So it just went to composting. Idiot.

The next plant is to fruit in about 1 year there, because the people raided our Botanical garden and stole many pups (I got it in exchange for another banana). So there are only 2 pups left. About 60cm of pstem height. Headkeeper there wanted to keep the pups below the plants, so that people could see, but idiocracy rules here 100%.

Picture of the plant in our Botanical garden (we are talking about gardens, right )
In the lower left corner you can also see a developing pineapple under the shade of other plants:

Hi there, here a picture of a part of my garden. These Cavendishes (6) sprouted march 2009. Unfortunately the mother plant died in march, 2m tall, it could have fruited this year Though off course I am happy with these

Nice one marenmar. Once again I see that the Cavendishes you have are nicely coloured as well as Ante's. Mine are not TCed, they were passed in the same manner as Kalabrian's very own bananas, and are about as old as my grandmother (70 years ago brought from India to our Botanical institute)... So here's some leaf pics to compare the spots (they are about the same age as those that Ante has, just have larger pot and grow faster ):



And some of the latter additions by my good friend Marcel: Musa 'Dwarf Brazilian'



and the last picture is Musa 'Raja Puri' (nicely recovering, it had no leaves when I got it..)



More to come soon. Lots of them...

Tnx for the nice pics Jack, I think you'r lucky to have found one that is not TC. My plants (TC) have big spreaded spots, from mid to the edge od the leaves. Since there are outside the house day and night the leaves and stem as well are showing more red.When I have time to take some pict of the other nanners, I'll post more. Ciaooo
