Hey Guys, so whatís my 1.5 year old VP telling me is wrong? Starting seeing this about 3 weeks ago. I sprayed southern AG Foliar spray for citrus, advocation, mango just two days ago to try to correct micronutrient deficiency. Seems within last 2 days things have gotten worse. What do you think this is and What do you recommend to correct the issue?

The ones I get are raw and green from a South Asian Supermarket. I think they are from India, I dont know what variety they are, but I think they are not the commonly sold ones otherwise they would say so. They are very small and underdeveloped. I use them to make sour lentils.

I also know of another variety(not in the UK) that is so sweet, it can be eaten without waiting for it to ripen.
Banganapalle. Tastes superb while green and raw also.

If you feel like taking a road trip, Iíve heard Going Bananas sells fruit. Iíd call before hand since they were closed down due to covid for a while and they may not have them ripe when you get there. Honestly though, I wouldnít put in the effort. I just got fruit off mine for the first time last week and was pretty underwhelmed, they pretty much tasted like a grocery store banana.  The core that spaugh referred to wasnít as bad on my bunch as some other backyard bananas (Iím guessing due to growing conditions) Iíve had but theyíre smaller and harder to peel than a Grand Nain due to their thin skin.  Iím still happy with them since I get sick when I eat grocery store bananas but was fine with these.

I have a friend with one or two of these trees growing, I think there is usually some dried pods hanging, so scoring you some should be no problem.

I have to agree with everyone that had great things to say about Frank, after dealing with him. I want to commend his excellent customer service. He went above and beyond to help me out. If you have never dealt with him, you should.
