Re: Fastest Growing Banana Variety

Same here. I thought I just had a bad plant.

So far the Namwah is the fastest growing for me. TC to flower in 11 months here in zone 8b.

Re: Fastest Growing Banana Variety

I didn't mentioned it because it's the slowest plant I've grown.

It's true that Cavendish are among the least cold hardy bananas, but Rose is not more hardy, nor shorter, nor more reliable. Rose really suffers during the cool months, fruits at 6-9' in my yard,...

Re: "RED" Banana Pup...But Mom Looks Like

Lots of varieties put up pups that are initially red, but later look like the parent plant. Based on the mother plant, it's an ABB genome banana, maybe Orinoco or "Namwah".

Re: What am I doing wrong?? Is my pup dying?

If you noticed 2 weeks ago, in the top photo, you can see the pronounced veins in the leaf. That is a prime example of a plant that has stopped pushing, choked, or stuck.

If it was my plant, I would...
