Wondering if anyone might be able to ID this banana.

I seem to recall ordering ice cream, apple and mysore - most have died off or been toppled by gophers, this guy is going nuts and has been split into a couple locations in the yard now.

Namwah or Blue Java.

RE: Best Guess

Thanks, most likely the blue java then as I know I ordered one of those at some point.

RE: Best Guess

Namwah fruit looks just like it as well with a blueish color to it. Go to and register awesome sit and i'm a member. A lot of people there always trying to figure out if they have the real deal.

It's just The .com isn't needed.

RE: Best Guess

Thanks - I popped over and took a look at the other site, I didn't realize there was such an issue with "fake" ice cream plants out there. I have the first hand down starting to ripen in a paper bag, I guess I'll see if it tastes ice-creamy or not :)

RE: Best Guess

yeah getting a honest blue java/ice cream is not an easy task. Usually ends up being namwah once it flowers
