Burro Banana

This would be the third year that we are harvesting small or burro banana from our backyard. Our plantain only failed us once which was last one year but that would be probably because we have been trying to save water & watering lesser & lesser when the plantain needs a lot of water for yielding fruit.

This is three pictures of the same banana row. We ate the bottom row( approx. 15-20), YUM!!

The bananas are almost ready to be harvested, but the bottom layers or the hands of the bunch are not fully grown probably because I was away on vacation for three weeks & lack of water might have halt its growth. But there are 2 bananas already ripened so need to guard it from birds & opossums!

Finally harvested the fruit & now it’s hanging from a hook from where it can be enjoyed as it ripens!
