Hey Hammer sorry I canít really help you out there, only tried the ones I mentioned but the Goldfinger has a nice balance, its sweeter, and just better tasting overall than cavendish imo, and it doesnít need staking. My dwarf cavendish has its first bunches on it right now that are ripening up so hopefully theyíll be better than the typical grocery store cavendish. Iíd also recommend trying to find dwarf varieties or varieties that donít need staking, staking and getting up on a ladder to get bananas sucks.

Hey John, theyíre just really really sweet and without the acidity you get with supermarket (cavendish) bananas, if you like some acidity these prob arenít for you. We grow gold finger too and thatís a great naner, also not much acidity, but the apple banana is just all sweet. Also growing the cavendish for that sweet/acid balance between the different varietyís.

Sorry, already sold

My Sweetheart is starting to flower, this will be the first year I let it hold fruit. I hope they are as good as your Brewsters Kaz!





Nice Nate.   Mine fruited last year and i harvested in Sept.  You and I are in same city.  When did you stop feeding it?

Thanks Tony. I have no set fertilizer schedule, pretty much fall and spring...I threw a bunch of compost on it a few weeks ago along with some citrus and avocado fertilizer, and I throw my dirty fish tank water on it after I clean the tank.

Curious how everyoneís trees are doing from this order? I had one Biqi survive thatís in the ground doing well, thereís also a sucker coming from the rootstock Iím hoping is male. Thanks again Ken! :) You pretty much got the Yangmei hype and excitement going again.



71
Is anyone ready to have their trees (suckers) sexed from this order? I have a sucker coming from my in ground Biqi Iíd like to get sexed, but itís $200 for 10 samples (leaves) so Iím looking for people to go in with to save some cash. Send me a pm if youíre interested, thanks

Hi Iím looking for a few or more people who are ready to have their trees sexed. I have a sucker growing from one of my trees and Iíd really like to know if itís a male or female. For the sexing, she needs 10 samples to run the assay, it is $200 for 10 samples, or one run. She can run one sample for $200. It is about the reagents and supplies' costs, thatís why Iíd like to find a few more people who want to check their plants too and split the run cost. Iím ready to do it ASAP. Thanks

This is my Biqi from Kens group buy last year, I planted it in the ground a couple months ago mid January, they really start to take off once theyíre in the ground and itís started to flush nicely in the last couple weeks.

24 baby! Thanks for the contest Kaz!  :)

If RKN can be properly treated with pesticides and beneficial nematodes, why the need to graft onto a different rootstock? The trees from the order last year planted in the ground seem to be doing pretty good on their native rootstock. If we can hit the RKNís before planting the trees, whatís the need to graft onto a different rootstock, unless obviously the growth flush and overall health of the tree will be improved.

Yes, if you treat your trees, you should be relatively safe but there are growers out there that may have a lot of money invested in their orchards and even the slightest possibility of bringing in harmful Nematodes can potentially cross contaminate all their other crops causing a huge loss of crops/money invested.

For the dooryard grower, not too big of an issue but for larger orchards, itís best to play it safe. An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.

Treating the trees with the two products I posted was relatively easy and gave me peace of mind.

Grafting onto other rootstocks may, or may not, give you better growth, disease resistance or better adaptability to drier/wetter soils. There is not a lot of data so far as this is such a new fruit crop.

Thank you Sir! Guess only time will tell on the rootstock...but Shaneís seedling tree in San Diego on native Rubra is a monster.
