Hallo Rallele,

Vielen Dank fuer die wundershoene Fotos. Es ist unklaublich, dass es
moeglich ist, dass in Deutschland die Bananebluemen bekommen sind.
Ich glaube, die sind im Trreibhaus kultiviert. Sonnst es ist normalerweise
unmoeglich.
Auf jeden Falls die Fotos sind 100% shoen.

WOW. Impressive!
Are they grown in greenhouses?
I am totally innocent about banana trees, as I have never had a banana tree... neither in my garden, nor in a pot.
I see some banana trees around Oradea (my town, in Romania) zone 7-ish, but they are kinda all the same kind. As tall as they can get over a spring-summer-fall time, when it dies to the ground with the first real cold weather.
But i have never seen a bloom, let alone a fruit on those trees.
Anyway! great pics and blooms!
Calin

Nice one Ralf. You must get decent temps to get that lot to flower.
The Helens Hybrid looks like it was cut back then decided to flower.

Wink Re: Flowering bananas from Germany

Wow, that is impressive!! I'd love to be able to produce some actual fruit like those "Red Jewels", just shows what can be achieved over here in Europe. How long did it take to produce ripe fruit on that "Red Jewell" and how old was it before it flowered? I think I might have to try and find me one of those
