Default 'Praying Hands' Fruit?

Judging by the fruit, can you all confirm this is 'Praying Hands'?

eBay Auction

This is the last one I'll probably purchase from eBay. I get nervous I'm not buying what it's labeled. I got several good resources here earlier today that I'll start buying from instead.

Thanks,
John

Yes that is the fruit of the Praying Hands banana. The shipping cost on that plant is atrocious! Unless of course if it's really big. If it's really a three foot tall pseudo-stem, well, maybe.

Seems like quite a few folks ask a lot for shipping, especially when dealing with larger corms. Thanks for the confirmation. I'll keep my fingers crossed that's what it is.

I have bought from Miami Leon on ebay
In fact I bought that same nana plant.
You will NOT be disappointed
The plant he sent me was very large and is growing like a weed
His feed back is good for a reason

Thanks Brian, I appreciate it. Can't wait to get it, especially after seeing Yellow Hats photos.

Thanks, it's one of my favorite places to hike in the islands. I could spend years exploring the trails of Kaua`i.

Love your saba photos. I'm looking forward to getting two of them and seeing how they grow for me here. Probably asking for a lot of work, but those are the coolest looking bananas. I'm a sucker for big plants.

Is there really a best part? One of the worst movies I've ever seen. I wanted to walk out of the theater but wife and her friend insisted we stay saying that something was going happen.......mmmm nope. Waste of time! I think it's the second worst movie I've ever seen.

Wasn't it like the most expensive movie to produce of all time?

I didn't think it was *that* bad, but it may be because my wife has a knack for wanting to see some of the worst movies ever made. By comparison, it was a decent movie, LOL

What was the worst movie? Please don't say "Battlefield Earth" I loved it and it got horrible reviews from everyone, including my peers.
