Re: Banana corm disaster!

Hard to tell in the photos. Either corm rot from water, fungal rot or Corm weevils damage. Its easier to diagnose before they get that funky.

Exporting bananas from Fiji in 1919

I just happened upon this really interesting video about the export banana industry in Fiji in 1919, some really neat historical footage. It looks like they are showing 'Dwarf Cavendish' in the field...

Re: How many Cavendish varieties & their differences are there?

It's not really possible to say exactly how many Cavendish cultivars there are, and it gets complex as what exactly defines a unique cultivar is a grey zone sometimes due to a number of different...

Re: How many Cavendish varieties & their differences are there?

Also, Grand Nain, Robusta and Masak Hijau.

You might also take a look at the 'list of banana' which gives the different sub-groups of the AAA cultivar:...

Re: How many Cavendish varieties & their differences are there?

I'm sorry I don't know that answer but I thought it was a good question. I do know there care at least three varieties including the Dwarf Cavedish (DC) and the Super (SDC).

Re: Common banana varieties in Hawaii?

I think GM is called Bluefields in Hawaii, maybe try asking around.

Re: Common banana varieties in Hawaii?

Doubtful you'll find GM. At least at the farmer's markets on the Big Island you'll find Williams, Brazilian, Cuban Reds, Saba, Lakatan, Kluay Khai, though the first 2 far outnumber anything else...

Re: Gros Michel Cold Tolerance Pt.2

It seems to be around the cavendish for cold hardiness, which isn't much.

Re: Propping up a fruiting banana tree

Assembly required - instructions are not.

2 pieces of structural pine and a pin.

Re: Propping up a fruiting banana tree

I made mine the exact same way. I glued the pieces together using pvc glue and used a cheap length of structural pine instead of a length of pvc pipe as a support as it was cheaper and seems strong...

Re: Seperated sucker with very little corm - will it survive?

I think it should be fine as long as the meristem isn't damaged. It still has roots. Just next time make sure to cut slightly towards the mother plant so that you get a larger chunk of corm.

Re: Seperated sucker with very little corm - will it survive?

It may, there is a good chance. I have grown full plants to flower from just a sliver of corm.

Re: GM leaf problem

That's great they are growing well. My Pacific Plantain and Red Dacca are my best performers. They are probably in the best spot for water, so I guess that helps. Can't wait for some rain. Keeping...

Re: GM leaf problem

Are you growing them in a pot or in the...

Joy My new Gros Michel bananas

I was so excited when the mail truck stopped in front of the shop. I actually jumped up and down and clapped. Probably amused the mailman greatly.

Re: dissapointed with mystery banana

Delonix,

Based on the pic, I'd guess that this was a prematurely ripened fruit on a stressed bunch of ABB cooking bananas. It happens frequently. Such fruit are often cracked, fibrous, corky or...

Try slicing them up and then frying them while they're green.

Re: dissapointed with mystery banana

You have to let them get really ripe before they're even comparable to something like Cavendish.

Re: Gros Michel Cold Tolerance?

Hard to believe they have restrictions on the TYPES you can grow - talk about govt intrusion into ones personal business.
