I couldn't find any evidence of any grubs; even in another banana corm which just started to rot - it had a...

This Cavendish sucker was seperated from its parent several months ago. It hasn't done anything and has very little corm, but a small amount with a few roots. I am thinking of growing it in a bucket...

Re: Giant Plantain

I don't eat Plantains ripe. I use them green to make Mangu (dominican version of Mofongo de plantano) and Tostones. On occasion if I forget them and they go ripe I bake them and eat with chicken...
