I'm jealous.  I always miss these.  I have to work that Saturday.  If it gets pushed back for any reason, then I can make the next Saturday.
 Saturday December 9th and bring some Lemon Zest and Maha Chanok.

I havenít tasted any of these varieties yet. I have heard that the red geffner doesnít taste as good as other varieties. Itís more show and less go.

The Yellow Birula was grafted in the spring of 2022. It is now in a 15 gallon pot.  Hopefully it turns yellow when it gets larger.

Hammer, my growing conditions are very different than yours. I donít know what would grow or taste best in your intense heat. Here in my very mild coastal SoCal conditions I really like Goldfinger, Dwarf Brazilian and Mysore. I have yet to try my Dwarf Red, Gros Michel or Raja Puri.

I fertilize with a lot of different fertilizers. But the main one that I use on bananas is the vigoro 6-4-6. I add some extra potassium to make it 6-4-9.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Huge bunch of Goldfinger bananas
« on: September 28, 2023, 12:21:59 PM »
There has been a lot of banana discussion lately on this forum, which I think is great. I usually post banana related stuff on bananas.org, but that forum is very difficult to use. It has way too many ads and the messaging sucks. So Iím glad there is some banana discussion going on here.

I wanted to post some pictures of my current Goldfinger banana bunch. For some reason the last couple of times this plant has fruited it has been taller than usual. The bunches have also been very large. Here are some pictures of it with flower emerging and as it is now with bunch developing. It is eleven feet tall.
















Thanks

My Brewster tree, in Long Beach, also has mostly small seeds this year. It must have been a change to our spring weather that caused this.

Hi Paul, that is sad that they donít ship anymore. There were a great resource. I ship pups. I grow about 15 different varieties. Most are $25 each plus shipping. You can pm me if interested.

Thanks

If you bought a tissue culture banana plant from Florida Hill, who knows what you got.  Tissue culture banana plants get mislabeled all the time and on top of that Florida Hill has a horrible reputation for mislabeled plants.  Who knows what you got.  It could be anything.  The bummer is you won't know for 1-2 years.  Buyer beware.
