Howdy,
The cavandish plants are 16 feet tall so I'm not sure what dwarf size is. The hands are 6kgs each and a good size bunch has between 8-12 hands. The one we are eating off atm produced $900 worth of bananas at the $14.99 price we are being charged here in the country. To be eating bananas year round you will need to have approx 20 adult plants plus suckers. Something to plan for :).
Regards Russ

Lachie, just watch out you dont get pinged by DEEDI. You aren't allowed to grow Cavendish in or around Brisbane. You cant grow any without a permit. Even with a license you can only grow these: Blue Java, Bluggoe, Ducasse, Goldfinger (FHIA 01), Kluai Namwa Khom (Dwarf Ducasse), Lady Finger and Pisang Ceylan (Mysore type).

The application is easy, but the banana plants will generally cost you $15 to start off. http://www.dpi.qld.gov.au/26_16392.htm

My dwarf ducasse I planted beside the house last Summer has been growing for about a month already this season, pretty impressive since it's only been 13-17c max temp! and still quite short days

Damn I wish I'd seen this earlier. I only had 1 banana palm that I saved before it got bulldozed and the goat just ate it. If you ever have more I would gladly purchase a couple off of you

If everyone in this country worries about a government department, nothing would ever happen. Nobody is going to go door to door taking dna samples of banana plants to see if they are cavandish or not. All I know if my plants are 12-16 feet tall and bear approx 60kgs plus of fruit per flower. I do have a smaller variety that has similar sized fruit but is a smaller herb/palm. I will be in Brisbane in approx a month so if anyone wants suckers email me at russ_drinkwater@yahoo.com.au

I've sent you an email Russ so hopefully you get it. I ended up applying for the license but the plants cost $30 each, you can only purchase them from backyardbananas.com.au and they have at least a 6 week wait whilst they clear a backorder. I wonder when I drive around SE Qld how many of the people with bananas in their back and front yards actually have permits - stuff all I imagine.

I've been waiting far longer than 6 weeks for my Blue Java (ice-cream) banana plants, and I'm only getting tissue culture plants from Backyardbananas. I can't complain because they are the only supplier that I can find.

BJ says...
I got mine last winter from them. Its fruiting now. Its a fantastic banana. I picked up the BJ and a Dwarf Ducasse. BJ is twice the size of DDU. it suckers lots as well. The Ducasse I received had already suckered when I got it, so I got two plants for the price of 1. Neither have shown much sign of fruit or suckering again yet though...

Hi,No-one I know of with home orchards worries about such rubbish anymore. Most of it is out of date from the bejelk-peterson times. Same as having no-more than 6 laying cooks etc. Its all bullshit.Years ago when I worked in the justice dept a butcher in rockhampton was fined for selling low fat sausages!

Hi, The one with the large fruit through winter produced 10 hands at a bit over 6kgs per hand. Frost stalls them a lot, frost free or sheltered is best. Cut your hands from the top downwards for a long supply time without a fruit glut. Ie cut off the whole bunch and no.1. it weighs up to 50kgs so is back breaking. no.2. all the fruit ripens at once. Better to just cut hands off at one hand a week or every 5 days depending on consumption.

Hey, Lachie
The one out the back of my oldies house grows about 6-7 tall and produces a banana bunch as big as cavandish and same size bananas as well. The only thing I can say is that it takes longer to develop and ripen. But the solution is to plant more clumps if you have the space.

This is my Cavendish here in Sydney. it fruited about 16 months after planting a sucker. They grow quite upright and someone familiar with bananas will be able to recognise if it is Cavendish or not just by the leaves
