Some aspects of the abnormal fruit of November-flowering bananas

Blake, J.R. and Peacock, B.C. (1966) Some aspects of the abnormal fruit of November-flowering bananas. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 23 (3). pp. 449-452.



During February in south-eastern Queensland some peculiarly shaped bananas, referred to by the trade as "November dumps", are marketed. This fruit owes its name to the blunt and stubby flower end and to the fact that the bunches are thrown (emerge) from the plant in early November. Carpel numbers are lower in Giant Cavendish fruit in bunches emerging in early November and the fruit is thinner.
