Banana species and cultivars grown?:
1) 'Orinoco', a.k.a., "Burro Banana" or "Donkey Banana" , 2) a very commonly grown dwarf lavendar flowered ornamental which when it fruits, makes finger-length, banana flavoring-fragrant yellow fruit with a number of large seeds, and, 3) an unknown cv of a dessert banana, hasn't flowered/fruited yet. Bluish blush on underside of leaves. I'd like to find out more about other kinds of edible bananas we could try.
