Abstract

Researchers have been conducting trials on the potential of banana production at various locations in Savannah, Georgia since 2003. In 2009, new banana research was initiated at the University of Georgia, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Tifton Campus. This research has identified several cultivars with cold hardiness capabilities and a short-cycle cultivar, 'Veinte Cohol' that has potential to become a specialty commercial crop in addition to several other fruits that are produced in the state. This paper addresses the growth performance and productive cycle of the Veinte Cohol cultivar and its economic potential as a commercial crop.
