banana recommendation

I noticed this year Logee's lists a dwarf ladyfinger banana for containers, but the ladyfinger banana fruits (sold as "Thai baby banana" from my local Asian supermarket) have been prone to having a hard, tough, stringy center. Any thoughts on a delicious eating banana that could be grown, at least for a while, in a large pot?

Thanks much!

Try a dwarf or super dwarf cavendish, both excellent eating and they say that they will bloom in pots! good luck!

Thanks, Shiollie! I always knew the Cavendish were popular, but I'm glad to know they are superior eating. Best to you and your garden!
