Re: Banana lost the central leaf and stop growing, how can i save it?

Looks like a Super Dwarf Cavendish. It flowered but then choked inside, very common with this cultivar. The bugs are just opportunistically feeding on the rot, they are not the cause. It will...

Re: Can you confirm my Suspicion: Black Sigatoka

That is not Black Sigatoka. It looks very superficial to me, just let the plant grow sort itself out. Sometime when transplanting a new sucker the first few are a bit odd as they can be damaged and...

Re: An easy one for the pros

The angle of the bunch can change drastically depending on bunch size. Namwahs tend to start out somewhat angular, and then become more pendant as the bunch gets older and heavier. As you can see,...

Re: An easy one for the pros

Looks like a Namwah to me. Ice Cream fruit shape and color are quite different, even when young.

Re: Help! We have moved and I want to replant these in the "right" place!

Your photo was not showing, but it should be showing below here.

It is not 'Orinoco', but rather looks to be Musa basjoo, which is a wild species that does not produce edible fruit.

I would...

Re: Cheesmanii or Atia Black?

See this photo I made many years ago for size comparisons. The shape of the M. balbisiana seed in this one is not as typical, they are usually much more rounded....

Re: Cheesmanii or Atia Black?

Both the plant and seed photos appear to be M. cheesmanii, however to be sure, what size are the seeds? M. cheesmanii has very large seeds, nearly 1cm across, whereas M.
balbisiana seeds are smaller,...

Re: Is this dwarf Puerto Rican?

Does not look like it, but could you post a photo of the whole bunch? Having photos that close up is a bit like trying to ID someone by a close up their nose or eye, but we gotta see the whole face.

Re: Contamination problem

It could be coming from anywhere really. It is not enough to autoclave your tools if they are improperly handled afterwards. In fact, autoclaving your tools is not necessary as it's much better to...

Re: Need assistance

Most likely 'Dwarf Namwah' aka 'Kluai Namwah Khom'. Could be 'Dwarf Orinoco', but I'd bet on Namwah from the photos provided.

Re: question for banana species growers

Sounds like it could be Musa siamensis, but would need a photo to ID for sure.

Re: Help with flowering banana ID

It is certainly not M. basjoo. Appears to be an edible cultivar, perhaps either 'Orinoco' or 'Namwah', but keep posting photos as the bunch develops and we can give you a more definitive ID.

Re: Contamination problem

We need a lot more information on your technique before any useful advice can be given.

Do you use an autoclave or pressure cooker to sterilize your media? Do you have a functioning laminar flow...

Re: Proud parent but they need names....help

Looks like a Silk type to me, 'Manzano'/'Apple' (in Florida, not "Apple" in Hawaii which is a Pome).

Re: Genetics question; calculating potential offspring?

There is no real answer to your question unfortunately, and no way to calculate it. Being parthenocarpic is not the only useful trait, you need to look at the entire plant and everything about it. A...

Re: Has anybody ever seen anything like this?!

Severly pot bound plants will do this sometimes, they keep growing without flowering and corms grow out of the soil. If you repot it to a larger container and plant it deeper so the soil covers the...

Re: Requesting an identification / confirmation.

100% not 'Ice Cream', most likely a 'Dwarf Cavendish'. Sorry.

Re: Mystery Banana at Work

'Orinoco'. You can find a lot of info about this cultivar on this website as they are very common.

Re: What is this

Does't look like either dwarf or tall Orinoco to me. I was thinking more like 'Raja Puri' perhaps.

If you want a better shot a good ID, keep posting photos as it develops, and DO NOT remove the...

Re: Are these bananas normal?

They could be about to flower, but that swelling is not normal and could indicate a different issue.

Are the plants continuing to make leaves as normal?

Re: Just read about a new disease called Bunchy top

In Hawaii, it's largely a problem because non-farmer folks do not remove infected plants, either because they are ignorant or uneducated about it, they see it as being too much work, or they just...
