Default English home-grown bananas!

Finally I've got to eat my first crop of home-grown bananas...Musa rajapuri...which are about half the size of M. cavendish, but are sweeter and have a slightly stronger flavour.

Thanks Barrie! Well I wouldn't call myself an expert, just a banana enthusiast with a bit of OCD about collecting. I'm actually not all that great about identifying types though Bluggo group types tend to have those hard angles to them, so they stand out. It's rarely dipped below 70F in the past 6 months and after several years here, anything below 65F feels almost painful!
