RAMOS, Dayana Portes  e  LEONEL, Sarita. Growth, yield and quality of 'Figo cinza' banana fruits in Botucatu-SP. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2009, vol.31, n.3, pp.749-754. ISSN 0100-2945.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-29452009000300018.

'Figo Cinza' is a cultivar of the genomic group ABB, Figo subgroup, which provides tolerance to Panama and Sigatoka diseases that may be useful in genetic breeding programs. Then, this work aimed to evaluate the plants growth, production and also the physical and chemical characteristics of the fruits from this cultivar in Botucatu city, São Paulo state, Brazil. Some growth characteristics were evaluated such as: plant height, the pseudostem circumference, number of leaves, number of days between planting and flowering, number of days between flowering and harvest and number of days from planting to harvest. These characteristics were measured at the flowering time. The production characteristics such as the bunch weigth, number of fruits, average weigth of the fruits, number of bunches and weight; in the second bunch it was evaluated the weight, the number, the length and the diameter of the fruits. The analyzed physical and chemical characteristics were: firmness, pH, titratable acidity, soluble solids, total sugars, starch and potassium. The used method was descriptive statiscs for the characterization of cultivar by the average calculations. The results showed that 'Figo Cinza' presented a high height (2.9 m), a cycle of 420 days, yield of 12.74 t ha -1 and the lowest acidity of the fruits (0.06%).
