By eclayne on Apr 23, 2014 9:06 PM, concerning plant: Dwarf Banana (Musa acuminata 'Dwarf Namwah')

This is a highly variable variety of M. acuminata. Quite a few patterns of variegation are known, as well as different shades of green, from dark to chartreuse. While each individual plant is generally color/pattern stable, pups will often differ significantly from the parent plant. The leaves will usually turn a solid green over the winter months, with warmer weather bringing a return of their previous year's pattern or color.

A very uniform bulbing 30 day hybrid. Excellent size and flavor. Easily in the radish top 10.
