Going Bananas about SEX...
« on: July 01, 2006, 06:05:51 PM »
 OK more like Going Bananas about  Banana Sex !!!
OK so we have about a half dozen Bananna trees ( different varieties all fruit pruducing..) which have reproduced enthusiastically with the summer rains.( freshly emerged 'Pups' as the new sprouts are called)
 OK, I know my Banana basics, they produce ONE crop of fruit then I cut them down and let an offspring grow up and produce etc etc...
 OK so My question is this : I seem to remember the guy at the nursery telling me that there were Male and Female plants which grow from a common Rhizome and that ofcourse the Males produce no fruit and should be snipped as they emerge.( Im mainly interisted in the trees for the Bananas) However a Google search and several pretty good sites make no mention of this and it seems that ALL banana plants will produce fruit ( provided theyre a fruiting variety ofcourse)   and the Male/ Female distinction is only within the flower shoot itself.. the females produce fruit, then the Male flowers emerge and fruit production is  stopped so THATS when to snip off the stem so 100% of the nutrients go to fruit production ...
Is this Right??????? it sure seems so from the ones that have produced so far. Boy have they produced. Im damn near sick of bananas I have 10 pounds of banana puree in the freezer, and a healthy 8 Hand bunch on one tree Now..
I know that there are several folks here that are qualified Experts in horticulture so I thought Id ask....I need to thin out the 'pups' each tree has two or three, and only needs one as its 'replacement'  and I cant really see any difference in them ????   Anyone with any 'Banana Know How' ????

I know almost nothing on the subject, but saw Produce pete this morning talking about the red ones, which got my curiosity. Hope this helps

Seeing "Lwood's" previous posts, I too thought this one was going to be quite different. ::)

If the word "TAILPIPE" was found somewhere in your initial post, I think we all would have bought a "bunch" and been much happier.. But noooooooo...  You wanted to have your bananas "make it" with other bananas.... So weird.... ;D
