Cold Re: English home-grown bananas!

The plant started fruiting at the end of its third year...picked fruit 12 months later.

As the consensus is Orinoco, I shall rename accordingly!

My other 'named' Orinocos were purchased from the same reputable nursery, as was the original Raja Puri...if I get those to fruit, I will present them to you all for proper identification!

My ultimate ambition is to eat the fruit of a Cavendish, but finding it very difficult to get the mature specimens through the winter...eight months cooped up in my greenhouse at 10C (50F) just about finishes them off, although the younger pups survive (just).

I shall persevere!
