The 1st 10 hands contain all female flowers (fruit fingers).
The 11th hand contains 9 female flowers and 7 male flowers.
The 12 hand contains 16 male flowers.
All the rest will be male, and thus the fruit count is 169.

To a point; e.g., when a finger or two turns yellow. Then I'll cut off the rachis and hang it up in the garage for further ripening.

Retired as of 4/18/16.
6 million banana bucks and counting.
