Re: Mini Banana Farm for Sale with 3BR/2BA Home

Moving to Knoxville. We currently are under contract for both our old and our new home. With the way the house and the property are set up I think continuing banana growing would be tough. I've seen...

Re: Good fertilizer for bananas?

I most often dump the contents of a push mower bag in the center of the mat and let it cascade around naturally, spreading out the larger clumps. Sometimes for aesthetic reasons I will spread it out...

Re: Looking for: True FHIA-1 Goldfinger

Well the fake one I've got is fantastic. There have been musings between some members that the "American Goldfinger" is an offtype of true FHIA-1. I have no way to really confirm that though. I...

Re: Good fertilizer for bananas?

PR Giants has posted about one of the fertilizers I almost exclusively use. Grass clippings. Lots and lots of grass clippings. The banners love it and I don't give a dang about my grass anyway. In a...

Re: What's blooming in your garden? (bananas)

Hey PR,

Hope you are well. I am a special kind of person as you say. I believe the variety that you and I have debated the most about was the 3640. However, I haven't cut off the male bud this...

Re: Pisang Raja Taste Report

Can't explain the differences in eating experiences. (yours sounds better) I uprooted it and made way for a Hoa Moa. hopefully I like that one more. We shall see. If not, I'm growing more gold...

Re: FHIA-03 Sweetheart Taste Report

Just had some in my yard. Your report is just about spot on with my experience. The only other way I would describe it is as if someone blended a goldfinger with a kandarian. Goldfinger so far is...

Re: What did you harvest today (bananas)

Well the wind huffed and puffed and blew another bunch down last night! I had a heavy bunch of nearly ripe FHIA-3. They were supported with a "fork" i made out of 1" pvc pipe. The wind snapped the...

Re: Tu'u Ghia Taste Report

Sounds a little tricky with the fingers snapping off when green. I doubt I will get a chance to grow that one, you are lucky.

Re: What did you harvest today (bananas)

So the GM ripened in the garage and I just had my first finger. It tasted quite good actually. In fact I'm not discerning much of a difference from the fully ripened bunch I harvested a several...

Re: Banana Core Quality

I think that picking it too soon was indeed the issue. I don't think Kandrian is one of those varieties that you can pick early without to many ill effects. Similarly SH3640 is definitely not one...

Banana Core Quality

Anyone know what might affect the quality of the core of a banana? My recent harvest of Kandrian has a bit of a tougher core. The texture is also somewhat off. My current guess is that I harvested...

Re: Taking the Thailand chance!

Valid point. I have been tempted to go the Thai - ebay route as well. But I didn't want to pay that much for a plant.

Re: Taking the Thailand chance!

If you asked the right people on this forum, you could have been hooked up with a GM without having to purchase one from Thailand. I would try that route next time on future varieties if you can...

Re: What did you harvest today (bananas)

Just harvested another nice bunch of Kandrian. This bunch developed a bit differently, there are a lot of fused or partially fused fingers. You would think it had been fraternizing with mat of...

Re: What did you harvest today (bananas)

Had another bunch of GM fall down. About half filled. Salvaging it might be a possibility. Is harvesting at this stage safe to eat? I really don't have time to jack with trying to fix it nor do I...

Re: Your favorite tasting bananas?

The double mahoi isn't awful, but as far as fruit goes it isn't that interesting. The multiple pendicules are one of the man reasons people grow it. The fruit isn't much better than a grocery store...
