Hiya Re: Rhino Horn - Canoas

Think about Saba and/or Praying Hands. Both are excellent cooking bananas.
Fairly disease resistant and wind tolerant.

I cut praying hands up when the skins are yellow but the fruit still firm and just steam them and put salt on top when serving. Great taste and texture. Can't wait to try my ARH's some day.

Me too. Hey --- Lowes is carring ARH in 1 gal pots. Picked one up with 7 pups. Will repot and divide.

Also got a Mallika mango. Mallika is a "condo mango" native to India. It has a superb flavor, unparalleled disease resistance, and small but extremely productive habit. There is a catch however. The fruit must be picked mature green for optimum flavor, and they are traditionally ripened in camel dung while on the way to market in India.

Now I have to find a camel.

The wait can't be too much longer, ARH's are short cycle, plant to harvest in 7 to 9 months.

You also have the option of stressing the plant and that will reduce the wait significantly without effecting flavor.

I prefer using Rhino Horns for maduros, Maricongos for tostones, French Plantains as cooking bananas,

but won't use any of those for a banana sundae.

By tipping and pruning you can limit it's height to 10 ft and let it grow wide. Agribon cloth to protect from any freezes. I've also got a Pickering which will get the same treatment.

To be honest, Orinoco do make mean tostones. I had some in Costa Rica and they were excellent.

It's always so sad to read a post like that.

I wish everyone had the ability to grow a real plantain.

The difference between a "cooking banana" and "dessert banana" are purely cultural, there is no biologic way to separate the two. There are many cultivars which are specifically called either cooking or dessert only, but it is completely relative to the context and cultural use (certain cultivars are used for certain recipes at various stages of ripeness). Some cultivars lend themselves better to certain ways of cooking in that they seem to please the most people when eaten, but any banana is edible cooked in any manner, and also raw when ripe.

Plantain bananas are normally cooked, but it is by no means necessary as stated above.
