I pulled this tree up behind a building in town when it was about 5" tall. I planted it behind my koe pond, not thinking it would live much less grow. I watched it and babied it along the way. I walked out to the pond one day and noticed a very large gorgeous bloom hanging off it and a tag of baby banana's, above it. I was so excitied, I kept a very close eye on it from that day on. Then Katrina decided she would uproot all my trees in the yard including my banana tree.. I lost the entire plant that day except for a small piece about 8" tall. So I dug that up and transplanted it beside my New Porch and it took off again, I noticed the other day another bloom on it and small banana's. Let's pray we don't have another hurricane this year. I really would love to taste these banana's.
