    Tasty indeed, Harvey. However, I like eating the saba (Cardava) banana raw as it is very sweet, sweeter than most other bananas. However, this is not the common practice in my country and the elders in my family discouraged me from eating fresh saba.

It may be the same as the "Bungulan" you mentioned.
    Nope, can't be 'Bungulan' since those are not very large.

    Hi Angel. Yes they have borne fruit. They belong to former students of mine that I still see regularly.

    Hey Traci, here is the banana tree I purchased locally grown here. I hope it survives the winter. It is growing slowly.
