The flavor profile of Namwah is quite differnet from Cavendish in my opinion, and the texture I think far better than Ice Cream. Ice Cream is getting a lot of hype lately but the fact is that its...

Re: Anyone ever get plants from here?

No, but the entire site appears to be a bunch of B.S. In particular, a phytosanitary certificate in Thailand is $90 U.S. dollars and the prices are far below that.

Re: Musa Ice Cream Blue Java grow and taste report

Even in Hawaii the Blue Java gets mixed up, so most likely it was not a Blue Java served to your customer since there are so many better tasting banana varieties.

Re: My Blue Java /Ice Cream Finally fruited

They take 6 months in Hawaii so I'd imagine they take longer where you are. I hope they ripen for you. They look very early.
