We have 4 other banana trees beside the one Bob cut down. On July 2nd Bob came in to get me and said look UP and way up high was the POD you see on the right in the collage above.
I shrieked "We Got More Bananas" we watched and on July 6, just 4 days later, I was Shrieking and Snapping! OH MY (note: the tree only bears fruit once, the stump you saw yesterday is dead and gone) but other little trees will come up around it.
A-Mazing! A-Mazing! little new bananas on July 6th. The sun was perfect, shining a beam right on the pod.
I have been documenting the growth of bananas since 2009, there is a label on the side bar called Banana Tree.
