Re: Blue Java Journal

Hey CB, was wondering if you could share your opinions on how Blue Java bananas taste. I realize it's purely subjective, but I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

Thanks!

Re: Not Rajapuri?

Well, the bunch finally started to yellow on me, so I harvested. Ended up with 10 hands, 126 bananas.

Tastewise, my palate isn't nearly as refined as others here, but I'd have to say these are...

Re: Bluefield Banana Variety (Hawaii)?

Hi Susan,

I'll see if he can give me a positive ID on your pics. Guessing he likely won't remember too many details since this was about 40+ years ago. I'll report back with any info.

Re: Not Rajapuri?

Thanks for all the sleuth work, folks!

I'll take a closer look after work today. I don't recall seeing the "single plane" growth described in the wiki, but I can't really be sure.

Not Rajapuri?

Hey Folks,

The first banana plant i ever bought was advertised as Rajapuri by Armstrong. Being naive, i kept clinging to the idea that it really was what they claimed it was.

....and they're finally ripe. Wow, that took a long time (9 months from appearance of bloom to ripe). Is that fairly normal?

As for the taste, I must say it's very similar to the DB/"Apple...

Re: Raja Puri Blooming?

Hammocked, those pics are a little deceiving. The Rajapuri is sitting on a pretty high hill. It's not really as tall as the garage it's next to.
