Re: Developing new variegated banana varieties

This was a pleasant surprise. I hand pollinated this hand in pouring rain and wasn't confident it would be successful. It turned out to be more successful than doing it on a dry day, so going forward...

Re: Virupakshi/Indian Hill Banana

Thanks Akula! As far as I can tell this is the first taste report of Virupakshi on this site. Was not expecting Namwah to be the closest comparison.

I began to consume these bananas in earnest when they...

Re: Mystery Musa! Gabe?

Unusually narrow leaves isn't a typical trait on edible cultivars, but can be a symptom of off-type mutation.

Re: Namwa?

Well they knew full well that it was namwah unfortunately. They duped me too. Live and learn! They are tasty and grow really well for me.

Re: Namwa?

Thank you so much! I really appreciate your help. I just wish Wellspring had notified their customers when it became apparent that there was an issue; it’s rough waiting a few years for one variety...

Re: Namwa?

I edited my last post so hopefully the photos are there...

Does Namwa always have pink petioles? I assumed mine was a Namwa but it doesn’t have any pink whatsoever.

Thank you so much for your help...

Re: Developing new variegated banana varieties

This is a good example of modified leaf scars and their spacing while growing in a curve but it's important to understand that this is a young growing point and not a mature growing...

Re: Developing new variegated banana varieties

You can find more macropropagation information then you'll probably need in most macropropagation manuals and the other things are just common sense.
Growing points emerge above leaf scars and leaf...

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

A few things are legitimately hard to get past I suppose. They (pretty much) knowingly sell plants incorrectly advertised (the nam-java for example). So say it's not their fault and that they buy...

Did you happen to get your TC VC from wellspring gardens? I have a regular VC that looks nothing like the TC VC. Also, the TC had wine stains as a young pup, which made me think it might be an AAB...
