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.
