Re: Opinions on the price of variegated bananas

I saw some dummy on ebay selling cmv infected bananas as variegated. People are desperate. Though, even for the real varieties, it's not even worth it. A few hundred at the most.

Re: Veinte Cohol is sick (indoor grow)

That looks like one of the handful of forms of banana leaf streak. Did it have mealy bugs on it? They spread that virus. If it is, you need to destroy the plant by 2ft deep burial or by burning...

Re: Are these Corm Borers??

Re: Is this Namwah or Blue Java?

If the banana's blue up, it will be Blue Java. I don't think it's the "Ice cream"/Namwah (USDA "Fougamou 1") because the fruits individually meet the peduncle at a knuckle. Namwah fruit hands meet...

Re: fiber from juicer

I would use it in your compost pile first. Let it break down, and you'll have great soil amendment.

Re: Red Banana Identification

Make sure that you sterilize them in a bleach water solution. You don't want to bring tropical diseases into your area.
