Re: Typical height for a Dwarf Namwah banana to fruit?

They are dwarves. Everything just gets really big here in the tropics. Plus my plants get a daily watering for 180 minutes. I'll see if I can get some pictures this weekend.

Re: Typical height for a Dwarf Namwah banana to fruit?

Mine is a monster, 13 feet when it fruited. My dwarf brazilians are around 13-14 feet. So most dwarves here are gigantic.

Re: Fruit on Ice Cream!!

Fruit wise, you'll be much happier with Namwahs. They taste way better than ice creams.

Re: How are everyone's banana plants this winter??

Everything slowed down a little bit. It took over 6 months to harvest the dwarf Brazilian bunch but I'll still take 60's to 70's over mainland winters!
