It's pretty easy! The real fingers will always be much much larger! They will also spread out and start getting larger.

The male hands always come after the female, they will be tiny and depending on the variety will eventually dry up or fall off.

If the 2nd hand is holding any of those tiny fingers I would just snap them off. This will allow the 1st hand to fill faster! I find cutting the main bud really doesn't effect filling. Leave it on so you can watch/enjoy it.

Hopefully that first hand fills a little for you! Just before your first frost cut em off and either cook them as plantains or immediately put them in a bag with a couple apples. They should turn yellow and hopefully give you something to taste! Sucks they don't have much more time to fill before winter. If the first yellow one isn't good, I would take the peel off and fry them if you really want to eat them.

You can eat them anyway you want! Totally edible! But if not yellow or cooked they will taste very very astringent like a raw green plantain.

Okay, so far there were 10 hands. Hand 1 has 5 bananas growing. I took the fingers off of hand 2. On the remaining hands the fingers fell off.

Someone correct me if I am wrong!! I'm pretty sure you can eat ANY part of the banana plant!! Taste is another thing!! I would t want to eat it haha. It would all be so astringent!! Next time your buying groceries. Buy a big green plantain. Peel it and fry it!! As your frying the pieces eat a green piece!! That is what I would think all the other parts of the banana plant would taste like. You may get some in your mouth but I bet you spit it out fast haha.

Look on YouTube how to clean and eat the bud!! That is pretty popular. I have tried to do this a couple times and it just wasn't for me. People eat it all around the world though. It's mostly the flowers! You just have to pull the hard plastic like part from them. Just YouTube it and see. if you do try the bud let me know what you think of the taste!!! I didn't like it! Lol
