Re: has anyone heard of or ordered from miamifruit

Was surprised to see the email alert about this thread. :08: I posted in this thread back in 2017, apparently.

Sometime after that, I ordered my own banana box from Miami fruit. In my opinion, it...

If I ever get a chance to buy them from...

Re: Just got my Gros Michel fruit order

I had my first one today. It wasn't completely ripe, but I wanted to get started - I have 40 bananas to eat! It was like you described - slightly better tasting than Cavendish - but definitely not...

Re: Just got my Gros Michel fruit order

I can't wait to taste them! I've been waiting for many years to get one, finally ended up splurging and buying a box.



I ordered them online from Miami Fruit.



Yes, these are from Florida. I...

Question Just got my Gros Michel fruit order

I ordered a box of Gros Michel fruit online a few weeks ago and just received it. I'm a bit underwhelmed by the size of the fruit, I expected them to be larger or at least 'plumper' than the regular...

Re: Banana ID and advice

This is mostly true. You're quite the detective!

The soil is almost completely sand. I thought perhaps fertilizing would compensate for the lack of actual "dirt", but perhaps not. I could mulch...

Pinwheel Banana ID and advice

Hello,

The attached pictures are from a banana I received back in February. It was the largest pup on a mama plant that was flowering and had fruit at the time. So right now it's roughly 9 months...

Pinwheel Re: WANTED: Gros Michel and Mysore banana fruit - not plants

Mostly because I'm curious about the taste, but also too impatient to wait 18 months to grow one. :ha:

If I like it I would consider planting one or two in the spring. I have an unknown banana now...

Thumbs up Re: WANTED: Gros Michel and Mysore banana fruit - not plants

Don't feel bad. There's always next year! I'll be waiting. :0517:

Hiya Re: WANTED: Gros Michel and Mysore banana fruit - not plants

They are $100 per box. That's not "a little expensive" that's "astronomically expensive". :ha:

And they're not immediately available, you have to pre-order to be put on a list. That's an expensive...

Hiya WANTED: Gros Michel and Mysore banana fruit - not plants

Looking to buy some Gros Michel and Mysore bananas - the fruit, not the plants. Does anyone have some for sale? Or know of a place that does?

The closest I've found is the 'mixed banana box' from...
