Re: Natal Queen Pineapple plant

My guess is they got the ones that are drilled... One brand drills theirs so you can't grow your own, like they lose much money that way... greed.

Re: Planting banana corm

It will likely rot in compost. You need something that drains well. Coarse sand until it has leaves is what many recommend.

Re: Wind Chill is Fake News

I tried 2 pairs and they were tight and my feet were much colder than wearing one pair. Loose fitting shoes would work better to keep your feet warm. Keeps a nice pillow of warm air in there. Same as...

Re: Prevention from choking

Re: Hitting Reset and refocusing a bit

Nick, I know you got rid of the bananas in your yard, still crying over it, but do you still have the 3 acre patch down the road between the rr trax and levy? You had Williams and Hua Moa, etc. there

Re: Cold hardy good tasting dwarf banana's

Orinoco are cold hardy but not very tasty if you want a sweeter dessert type banana.

Re: My New 2160 sq ft Musa Research Greenhouse!

If it works out I might move to the gulf coast and buy one... Getting away from pests and diseases sounds like a good move. Put me down for some of those Paggi when they are ripe.

Re: My New 2160 sq ft Musa Research Greenhouse!

Re: How to ID Dwarf Brazilian?

The pic you posted is the Dwarf.
Most persistent growth on the rachis of any banana I know of. Nothing falls off it. I find it funny how the tall is completely clean. Delicious banana. In my top 5.

Does hanging bunches upside down slow ripening?

I had someone tell me he has personally done it several times and it spreads out ripening time so you don't have to eat them all at once. Anyone know about this from experience?
