Re: Musella lasiocarpa/Abyssinian

If you mean it has a bit of red in it, that is normal under some conditions.

Re: Plant arrangement

Praying Hands has the potential to be largest, its basically the same as Saba and can be a monster, its not unusual to have them get 20ft or more. Mysore/Pisang klotek can also get rather tall in...

Re: Banana mystery

Looks like a Maoli of some sort perhaps, leave the male bud (purple thing) on for aiding precise ID as it develops. Also post some photos of the bunch from a bit further back showing the whole thing...

Re: Home depot Blue java or Namwa?

This is sorta true in that they are aren’t rare, but they are also often cooked half-ripe or so, kinda rare to see them used as a dessert fruit in the Pacific (outside of Hawaii). Normally for...

Re: Need some help identifying some bananas

First one is very hard to tell for sure from the photos, but looks like Musa itnerans (Mekong Giant), and the second one that is flowering is Musa basjoo

Re: Home depot Blue java or Namwa?

The flavor profile of Namwah is quite differnet from Cavendish in my opinion, and the texture I think far better than Ice Cream. Ice Cream is getting a lot of hype lately but the fact is that its...

Re: Ladyfinger

The photo in that link is not 'Mysore', looks like a Silk.

Cannot point to a specific variety, even though bananas are clonal, they can be quite fluid actually, and IDing it as a Pome is as close as...

Re: Dwarf Green Turn to Dwarf Red.

Just because the young TC plants are more reddish doesnt mean it will correlate to the entire plant reverting, it could be a slight change where just they just have more red than others when young...

Re: Ladyfinger

The commercial Ladyfinger varieties are all the dwarf forms such as ‘Prata Ana’ which have persistent bracts, unike the tall forms like yours in which the bracts and flowers fall.

The fruit shape is...

Re: Dwarf Green Turn to Dwarf Red.

Its certainly possible, but I would say these plants are far too young to be sure of something like that. You really have to grow them out and see until fruiting.
Young TC plants do not typically...

Re: Ladyfinger

Does not look like Manzano to me. Looks fine to be a Pome-type Australian ‘Ladyfinger’, but you may notice they are different from commercial ones because there are a number of different cultivars,...

Re: first flower ! help identifying !

Its a Cavendish, likely ‘Dwarf Cavendish’, but potentially one if the taller forms such as ‘Grand Nain’ or ‘Williams’ which is just a little short due to conditions. If you post another photo of the...

Re: Sour Banana

There isn't enough information in those photos to make an educated guess unfortunately, we would need to see more of the plant. It doesn't have any strikingly unique traits from those photos, and as...

Re: Plant spacing + irrigation

Depends on cultivar and how intensely they will be managed. But for most I prefer 6-8ft in staggered double or triple rows about 5ft apart. For irrigation I prefer to use Netafim 1/2” poly driphose...

Re: Tissue Culture Problem Question

Theres a chance they could be detrimental off-types, if from Agri-Starts, this would not be unheard of as they seem to do almost no quality control for off-types.

Re: Tissue Culture Problem Question

Sword and water suckers are genetically indentical and especially for TC, there is no difference between them. They can both be removed and produce healthy plants, they just need to be treated...

Re: tissue culturing with other parts of plant?

If the fate of bananas depended on it, with enough money and specilalists, theorhetically it might be possible technically, but it would be very difficult with no meaningful gain.

Re: musa thomsonii

yunnanensis is medium/average sized, normally about 3-5m Id say, not a particualry large plant. There doesnt seem to be much signicant variation of it within Yunnan, perhaps there are more different...

Re: musa thomsonii

Im fairly convinced the M. thomsonii I had were M. yunnanensis.
