A bud started emerging from my oldest Sweetheart plant today. The timing is right, but although the trunk is 6+ inches wide at the base the pseudostem height is only about 32 inches.

Tony and Richard, my Sweetheart banana bloomed over the winter, but it didn't produce any bananas because it was so short and not mature enough. Gabe said it was flowering due to stress. He was right that it didn't produce any bananas, but two new pups came up. My Sweetheart has a flower It was only about four feet tall.
