My namwas are in the 13-15 foot range and big as a barrel so it was odd to see a flower on such a small plant. Didn't think it was possible. Looking forward to see how many hands her plant puts out.

So yeah, gonna be a big year for backyard bananas in the SE.
Outstanding! Most of ours have only 3 leaves now---it was a mild winter and cool dry Spring. Things seem to be taking off now.I expect flowers by July 4 on several varieties.
Afterall...doesn't everyone want a bigger Banana?
