Re: What to do with frozen bananas?

Yes cut or wait till they dry up and fall off. At the nasty stinky stage that’s too late for cutting for me! I just let them rot down and dry up. You can just pull them off later easily! By now the...

Re: Weather forecast and banana ripening/ID question

Hua Moa is actually quite tasty ripe out of hand, but it will have a core. I cut them up and eat them to avoid the core.

Re: Black sigatoka or something else?

It's not Sigatoka, and even if it was, there would be no reason to kill the plant, it's not that kind of disease which needs such drastic treatment.

If the first photo is of the one which just...

Re: Black sigatoka or something else?

Howdy! I'm in the Lake Somerville area of Texas. (Do we know each other from TRFG? I'm John Reno.) Anyway - I'd say if you are concerned that it might be Sigatoka, cut off the affected leaves and...

Re: Can I get some advice about this Cavendish, which has just flowered?

Re: Can I get some advice about this Cavendish, which has just flowered?

Your banana is most definitely NOT a Cavendishii of any type. I personally would NEVER remove pups while fruit is developing or ripening. Rather late in the season to fertilize, seeing as your...

Re: Can I get some advice about this Cavendish, which has just flowered?

it doesn't look to me to be a Cavendish. the small pups should have some red spots on their leaves. Also you can't grow outside zone 8a, under 50F it will start to die. At 25 would be frozen, getting...

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