The mother plant flowered back in April I think,now the baby daughter is flowering,all within 5 months,now thats really fast!
Pink Bananas again
Well gee...wonder why they aren't edible too?? A banana is a banana, isn't it????
Some berries in the wild look good and Delicious,but they be poisonous as all get out !
These are only as big as my little finger,I have never tried them,just what I heard from other people who have grown them.
Well..good point...on the 'lookin' good'.
I used to think poke berries looked good enough to eat too, but I knew better than to try them...LOL!!
Ornamental Bananas are generally non-hybrid plants. Edible Bananas are hybrids.
The flesh of Ornamental Bananas is safe to eat, but you get a mouthful of buckshot-like seeds to go with. If you took the time to strain the fruit from the seeds you might make a more palatable product but it would be a lot of work for little produce.
Yep thats what I've heard,feels like you got a mouth full of buckshot!!!
That is a beautiful banana tree, may i ask what the name of it is? Sometime down the road I might try growing one, just because it is so pretty but right now want to make sure my puppy doesnt get it! Thanks
Heres some info.
Thank you Tropicman! I bookmarked it. I see they also have a pineapple banana tree, never heard of that, that also is going to be a possibility.
Yes it comes from being crossed with the Raja Puri,which I have and love to grow,nice wide stiff leaves that hold up to the wind real well!
Tropicman, I have few more question, have you ever ate the fruit from the pineapple banana? Does it really have a taste (either slight or not) of pineapple? Or is it that its acidic like a pineapple? Thanks for your help :)
No but have had the raja puri,very sweet,bananas were small 4 to 6 inches,had a custard texture,I had one plant that had a lot of rag,so I'm not sure that maybe it was crossed with a raja puri and not pure,I got these plants from Stokes Tropicals years ago,so I can only guess they sent me the right plants,this is my favorite eating banana,next to the Cavendish!
