Re: Now is the time to get the Kepler and Rust banana book!

I think the Kepler and Rust book is useful for anyone who wants to know about all kinds of bananas. It doesn't get into growing bananas in different zones, but then that is a matter of winter...

Re: Need Musa Blue Java Banana Advice

I don't know that anyone has said to avoid Namwah. I think they may have said to make sure that someone doesn't sell you Namwah, *if you want Blue Java/Ice Cream*. Namwah is highly regarded in...

Re: Dwarf Apple and Gros Michel

Nice! I was going to ask you about that Dwarf "Apple", when I noticed you are in Hawaii. Your Dwarf Apple is what we would call Dw. Brazilian. Had any problems with diseases? I understand that some...

Re: Looking up in my Texas garden!

Looks nice, neighbor (I'm a fellow Texan). Where'd you get yours from? My supposed Blue Java is making bananas at our place in 9B, but I'm afraid mine might be a tall Namwah instead. When I harvest I...

Re: If not Blue Java, then what?

Thanks! Does it look like Dwarf or Tall? I understand that the fruit of Namwah is yellowish and that of Blue Java is white, but are there other differences to look for, perhaps in the plant itself?

Re: bananapups.com, tytailors fe'i aiuri tc's

It was the old "lack of water because you watered too much and the roots died" or "lack of water because you didn't water enough" question. I think I made a mistake by up-potting it when I brought it...

I'm jealous! You didn't screw up like I did. I think I would have lost mine from neglect if not for my wife. Now it's like I'm trying to save a dying patient.

Re: Looking For: Pisang Raja, SH-3640, tu'u ghia

So does that mean that "Dwarf Red Green" is the same as a dwarf Rojo Verde. (I knew what Rojo and Verde mean. I just didn't know that it was the same plant.)
