Re: Virupakshi/Indian Hill Banana

Awesome! Thanks for the write up! Is this one the clone I imported? I can’t remember if I sent you one.

Re: Dwarf Cavendish fruit with a “core”

Not Musa cavendish.

These look to be Musa dwarf Orinoco. With a picture of more mature fruit I could confirm. Very cold hardy dual purpose banana and known to have a core. I get a core in maybe 1/4...

I can also confirm this method works. Low light and speeding growth is another easy method.

Re: Mystery Musa! Gabe?

Re: Looks like I may not receive my order from Florida Hill Nursery.

Some people just like a surprise 2 years later I think. As a collector I just don’t get it? Looking at price. You save $10-$20 for a tiny plant. Pea size corm vs baseball/softball size pup corm? Most...

Re: Anyone growing Thai Black?

I’ve never lost a corm here planted outside. Including this year when it hit 7F! Just mulch/hay for protection. Not much. Since it’s a true Musa Balbisiana I would hope it would be fairly cold hardy!...

Re: How hot is too hot for Bananas? Anyone try shade nets?

I’m in about the same climate and keep 99% of my Musa in full sun. I’m talking large plants in ground. Anything in pots I keep in 50% shade cloth. Smaller stuff under 70% cloth. As long as they get...

Re: Question about Banana Mats/Corms

I agree. Just keep between 2-4 pstems per mat for max growth. Basjoo can be a heavy pupper so don’t butcher the corm or anything. I always look at the pstem/coem/pups as a pizza cut into 4 quarters....

Re: Seasonal Influence on bunch size

I do get smaller early spring blooms but normally by May/June they are normal. I always assumed it was due to winter stress on the plant.

Try removing a pup or 2 and once they are growing pick a...

Re: Fruiting Bananas in North Alabama

I would recommend dwarf Orinoco or dwarf Brazilian. The dwarf namwa should do great also. With dwarf Orinoco the min temp you need to shoot for is about 26f.

Good luck. Also remember do not water...
