Re: Problems with Cooking Blue Java Bananas?

Sorry,

I was not clear on this. They are ripe. I harvested the entire bunch when a green banana split open. The first hand ripened in a couple of days after cutting the bunch off.

Re: please help!

You may want to consider if the tree is getting more sun than it was use to. Since it is such a new tree and I assume small it may take a while to accustom to a new location.

Re: Pictures of my beds and plants

I love the bench, I would just think that the bananas may be a little close. They may be sitting next to you by the end of the year.

Re: Fertilizer Question

That was good to point out that trace elements were not present in the pure chemicals which would normally be found in more general fertilizers.

Re: Psuedostem rotten

I was guessing that it suffered from root rot. This may be the case if the soil did not dry out between watering.

Re: FHIA-01 Goldfinger blooming

Is it really true that Goldfinger produces a second flower? According to the patent information a second flower will come in about a half a year after first flowering.

What is the consensus for determining the height of banana plants. Is it the height of the Pseudostem or the height of the tallest leaf?
