Default More surprises from cut p-stems

Hello Ya'll

Christmas has come early and I need some help with an ID on the presents. I had to cut back several p-stems due to damage this summer. Three have now fruited. One, the first and most unexpected, is posted here in an earlier thread. Need some help with an ID please. I have always been under the impression that these were either basjoo or Saba. Please help me finally arrive at a conclusion. Here ya go. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

This is a fair distant shot:

Have a great weekend. And thank you for all your help!

Compare the MALE flowers to pix at

http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/l...182619653.html

If no match, send me the pix and I will try and match it with the pix I have.

I am convinced that that it the best way to match varieties.

P-stem is short for pseudostem, which refers to the trunk of the banana. It is called pseudo because it is not actually a stem, but a group of tightly packed leaf petioles that give the appearance of being a stem.

Hello Ya'll,
Hope you are well.
Shirley in Wisconsin - The camera is a Kodak EasyShare DX6490. I uploaded the pictures to photobucket.com and posted them here. I am glad you are enjoying them. I enjoy sharing them.
Pitangadiego - I will send you some picures. I have been unsuccessful in my bid to ID these.
Catch ya'll later.
