How would you rate pitogo against namwah, praying hands, dwarf Brazilian etc.?


 I was disappointed but it was the first bunch I'll have to try another bunch
 same with ele ele really just for cooking in my opinion,cooked it was good

Kinda scary, pathogen? I would send pic to trec
Does western Wellington has pretty good soil,better than coast?
Boron?

BS I had a pitogo banana do that once the first time it bloomed.Has your Kandrian bloomed again with the same condition?Cultural,climatic ex dry cold ,nutritional  or maybe lawn herbicide?I lean towards nutritional at the time of development.I have seen this in other yards.

look at nutritional

This is its second fruiting.  Identical happened to the first fruiting.  It gets Going Bananas fert (maybe not as much/often as it should) and plenty of water.  I am in western Wellington.   Absolutely no herbicides or pesticides applied.

For me where I have it planted it's close to the size of Kandrian which is only 25feet apart both are 25 feet tall +or - but the Kandrian is even thicker trunked.

Had my first charichuela fruit in a long time,I neglected that poor tree to long .Now looks very good.Fruit is similar to your round one but lemon shape and larger.Taste very nice.I think the seed was from Adolf Grimals tree.That tree was moved to fruit and spice park where it died(stress and cold winters at that time)
