Default Re: Almost Naked Orinoco Bloom

I keep hearing that a banana plant can mature fruits, even if it had little to no leaves, but has a pup with leaves. My experience has shown this to be incorrect. In fact, this year my Saba bloomed right after a freeze, that killed the leaves. Despite having two pups with leaves in the mat, the fruit did not mature. This has happened twice.
I would love to see some evidence.
