Re: Kandarian Flower Update

I just got my pup from Leo - he's only about 20 miles south of me. Didn't see his Kandarian flowering and I think he said it hasn't flowered yet. In any case, I was curious if it was more of a raw...

Re: Kandarian Flower Update

I just got a Kandarian and looking forward to seeing it grow and fruit. Is it supposed to be a cooking banana or to eat raw or both?

Re: Fhia-2 young plant

The coloring on the FHIA-02 looks amazing and sounds like it tastes good, but I keep hearing reports that it's slow growing. I have FHIA-03 and hope to soon have FHIA-01 so I'm wondering if it's...

Re: Question on Maoli

Re: What is your favotrite banana?

If we are going with the title of this thread, my "favotrite" banana (one that is lacking originality or freshness) would be Dwarf Cavendish.

If we are talking about our "favorite" banana, that's...

Funky cores of Praying Hands

I had this bunch of Praying Hands bananas that stayed on the plant for at least 9 months before I harvested them. They never turned yellow, but filled out reasonably well. After they began turning...

Re: SH-3640 - Jan 24, 2016

That's interesting, Keith. So, you're saying most people in PR (whether locals or tourists) prefer the taste of Cavendish over other bananas and you actually give away the other banana varieties for...

Re: RED bananas

Thanks, Mark - good comparison. That's one of the reasons I got rid of D. Cavendish in my yard a few years ago - it was the least cold tolerant out of any of my bananas. Seems that it got severely...

Re: SH-3640 - Jan 24, 2016

Keith, on a previous thread, you stated that SH 3640 is "not up to the quality of a store bought Cavendish". What exactly do you mean by that? I'm assuming you are referring to typical...

Re: RED bananas

How does the cold tolerance of Morado (and other Red bananas) compare to Namwa? I know they can handle less cold, but how much less?

Also, what are the qualities of Verdin, Keith? I've seen your...
