An update on my bananas. You can see the little beige strips, each is a teeny banana. There was about “5” more teeny bananas but the heat here is terrible. I’m thinking that might b why they keep falling off. There’s another group to the right under the red leaf😩😊💕
@alan1111. I wish it was a drink. I do a slow long trickle so it gets a deep soak. I read that once the temperature gets to 100F they’ll stop growing. Well they’ll be next year🤗🤗😊💕. The wasps are loving the sweet nectar!
Here’s an update on my banana tree. You can see how the deep red leaves will open up one at a time revealing a small group of bananas. There’s two sets of bananas above the red leaf. The light brownish little things are teeny bananas. Hope that made sense?!😊💕
@Keely Yes!, I got lucky. These a “Musa banana trees so yes these are edible. I had bananas 2 yrs ago in another group of banana trees I have but these look like their going to b a lot bigger. It’s only been a week tomorrow that this first leaf opened🤗😊💕
@lovestogarden it’s funny you should mention that!! Years ago my sister-in-law (@ that time) was from Puerto Rico and she made a dish with spicy beef wrapped in banana leaves cooked on the stove in alittle oil. I’d totally forgotten until you just mentioned it!! Thxs sooo much. I’m going to google some recipes tomorrow Maybe I should try and call her😂👍🏻🤗. Do you know any recipes???🤗🤗😊💕
😂 yummy. I have made something way back when, but was not good enough to keep making. I recently had Dim Sum and saw one wrapped in a leaf. Your leaves just look so perfect. Most leaves I see they are rather wind ripped. Let me know how your dish turns out. 💗
@novicegardenlover yeah it’s cool to c banana growing on them. A woman told me it kinda goes mother to daughter etc. and she said get rid of a lot of the baby trees and keep the daughter and 😊granddaughter 😊 this, I guess is how u get bananas!! If anyone has any other tips I’d b glad to hear them but it makes since not to keep to many so a lot of energy goes into one of em giving bananas lol🤗🤗🤗😊💕
@novicegardenlover. Thxs for checking I did find it hard to understand how a tree could pass on another producing she’s probably right they could use fresh soil/ compost, I’ll check plus whatever they need to eat. I do like them they grow great here we had them all across the back of the hour it was to much. They do love water and the more the happier they seem to b. Thxs my good friend your very helpful 👍🏻🤗😘😊💕
