Re: 2018 Banana Patch: Pensacola, Florida

I got my Manzano from a local place. I would post pictures, but it seems to be a struggle for me on this site.

Re: 2018 Banana Patch: Pensacola, Florida

Thank you for the update, looks like you will have some Christmas bananas! As you may remember, we both have the same Namwa strain. I harvested a small bunch a few months ago, and have had a couple...

Re: Bunches with winter coming

And, Akula, I just looked at your last Namwa update (9-28, I think). My bananas were at that stage roughly 71 days before I harvested. My bunch was much smaller, as was the p-stem.

Re: Bunches with winter coming

Thank you for the reply, and I agree on many levels. I moved out to a larger piece of property a year and a half ago, and have planted tons of fruits/vegetables. Some things grow easily, others...

Re: Bunches with winter coming

You are correct, that would be incredible (if true). I just checked dates and it was a little over 2.5 months. Interestingly, the reason I harvested them is because the stem broke off--it was a...

Bunches with winter coming

Well, I harvested my first bunch a couple weeks ago (Namwa labeled IC) and it was awesome! I figured that was it for the year, but thanks to the advice of people on this forum, my plants went crazy...

Re: An easy one for the pros

Interestingly, I just looked at JFE's site today, and they do no mention Blue Java at all, only Ice Cream. I thought it mentioned Blue Java before, and the pics are definitely some blue looking...

Re: An easy one for the pros

I have spent some time on the site over the last several months, and because of the knowledge gleaned, have been fertilizing the fruiting plant with K only. I have been using SOP rather than MOP,...

Re: An easy one for the pros

I appreciate everybody's help! I will have to go through this stuff slowly--it will be a good learning experience as you have mentioned all the characteristics you are looking at to draw a...

Re: An easy one for the pros

Thank you everyone for all the info. Also, Mark's comment begs the question--how long does it take for Tall Namwah to ripen in central FL? I'm expecting about 6 months frost free from when it...

Re: An easy one for the pros

1-1. I'm guessing I'll know with certainty by the time they mature? Sounds like Namwah is as good or better, so either way, I'm happy. Whatever it is, I was pleasantly surprised with how it...

Re: An easy one for the pros

Well, that's great to hear! It came as a pup last spring from Just Fruits and Exotics. After studying 5000 photos here, I thought it could be Namwah or Orinoco, but just got more and more confused....

An easy one for the pros

I've been lurking for months and trying to figure out what I have for my first flower here. I keep going in circles, but I will say the plant was labeled as Blue Java. I'm in central FL and due to...
