Help with brown "bark" on bananas
« on: June 13, 2018, 03:52:57 PM »
Please take a look at the pictures below.  I don't get bananas every year, and when I do some of them develop dry ends and this brown scaly skin.  The variety is Monthan.
Does anyone know what this is, what causes it, and how to eliminate it?  Many thanks.





Thank you!

Lots of info on pests and diseases that affect / invade nannas, but that looks like scab moth damage.
