Curaré Enano is an AAB banana, classified in the False Horn cluster of cooking plantains. It is also known as Dwarf Hartón, because the quality of the fruit is similar to Cuerno (= Harton, Horn Plantain). It originated in Central America as a mutation of the tall Curaré. This shorter clone was originally distributed by CATIE reseach centre in Costa Rica. It is mainly grown in Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Dominican Republic, Ecuador and Colombia and exported all over the world.
We ship a stout rooted sucker, not a potted plant. You will receive it with the corm wrapped in a bag with moist sphagnum or perlite.
In spring, suckers may not have roots. In this case, suckers are easy to root if temperatures are kept between 20 and 30 C.
