Re: 2018 Banana Patch: Pensacola, Florida

Re: Deflowering bananas.

As Hector said, The bunch fills out a little quicker and the fruits are a little bigger. If it was just for me, I might not do it. But...fruit buyers want big fruit. For dwarf superplantain, I...

Re: First Macropropagation experiments - Sddarkman619

Re: TRADE: my gros michel for your blue java

Brazilian is the hardiest banana I have seen... Against pests, disease and cold. Taste great as well. The only downside is a 5-6 month wait for ripening.
