Re: New concept GM high density field

Quite right, it is of course always a small risk. That field is however less exposed from the northwesterly wind which can occasionally be cold as it passes over a nearby mountain. We had some leaf...

Re: Photo upload is not working

Yep, I can upload again. The problem was on my end. I use an android tablet when I am in the field and the problem came from there.

Re: Raja Puri????

Those look like GM male flowers to me. I still wanna see what Gabe thinks. But it could be a normal Musa Gros Michel? Or a GM Hybrid like I said. But it’s not fhia-02.

The pstem is just so green!...

I've had probably 250-300 different kinds of bananas, but I'm kinda awful at coming up with a favorite for eating, though I get asked all the time. I tend to appreciate all of the differences in the...

If this works for Musa then I am super excited.

This would be a great way to share the more rare varieties I grow instead of waiting for suckers to trim.

FHIA18 or SH360?

Just cut down my 2nd bunch from the other Hua Moa. This one was a little larger I think. Another great yield.

Re: Weird spots on flesh of my first harvested sweetheart banana

Weird spots on flesh of my first harvested sweetheart banana

I proudly harvested my first FHIA3 Sweetheart banana and the flesh had these red spots not just on the surface of the flesh. Any idea what it is?

Re: red bananas

They have many names but the common international name is actually just 'Red', or sometimes 'Tall Red' to distinguish from the short form, 'Dwarf Red'. Some other common names include 'Morado',...
