Re: Is this a Super Dwarf Cavendish?

Years ago I planted some for some job. Never did see how they turned out. And it's one of the easier plants to have that I don't have myself.

Gonna have to get some.

Re: Is this a Super Dwarf Cavendish?

Judging by how small it is (and how compact) and the other stuff Yug mentioned, it most likely is an SDC. Since you live in England that's probably the most common variety sold anyway, as most people...
