Default lady finger bananas

A common banana in Australia, but as I'm new here I thought I'd bore you with pics of them.

The tallest leaves reach up well past 8 metres.

The last three bunches we have picked have all weighed nearly 30kg and had 50-60 bananas on each, I don't think the winter bunches (the three we have growing at the moment) will reach that size, but who cares, they taste so good.

I live in Queensland - where the government is run by the banana growing industry. We can only grow Ladyfinger, Blue Java, Ducasse, Goldfinger, Bluggoe (plantain or cooking banana), and Kluai Namwa Khom (Dwarf Ducasse) and Pisang Ceylan and are limited to ten plants in total.

Seeded bananas are cancerous (or so the government would have us believe) and the government can and does invade private property to destroy illegal bananas. We are a democracy LOL.
The universe is my eyes and ears. All else is hearsay.
