The Flower on a Hardy Banana

The Flower on a Hardy Banana

 

Last year at a garden sale, I picked up two little hardy banana cuttings.  They grew and grew and gave the tropical look that I wanted.  Hardy bananas plants are not fruiting bananas and if I find time this winter I may well determine if these are the ones grown for twine or something.

But…  there I was walking round the garden yesterday, and I noticed something strange on the ground.  I looked up and the hardy nonfruiting banana had a flower on it, and two rows of little bananas!! I doubt that we will get enough 80 degree days to ripen these little guys but boy what a treat to see.

  1. Hi! I was surprised by seeing some gorgeous, fruiting banana trees at the mall. They were growing in a protected spot near a big hot parking lot in Upstate NY. Nice photos.
