Joy I either have a flag on my

Ice Cream banana or.... it's an ear of corn This is one of the first bananas I got after joining here from Sandy 0225 so that makes it late Sept /early Oct 2008. it was a 7' banana cut down to 3 1/2 for shipping and, last year grew to 8 1/2 ft ( p-stem height) and was chopped down to 5 ' for the winter. It's up to almost 8' this year and just put out this flag over the past couple of days.


Here's the whole plant:

It didn't put near as many leaves out as the others so far this season and now I know why.

Omg! Congrats dude!


I have an Ice Cream banana plant but it's only about 2 feet tall. You said you cut it to 5 feet tall... Did you cut off the leaves too? Did you store it as a dormant plant? Sorry for all the questions but this is total excite!

Thanks All ...

Hollyberry... I'm sure you're going to have your own soon.

Nicest thing you could have said JaNan.... Thanks......I feel kind of"stinky" about now over it!

Thanks Cory, yeah I just whacked it off in October every year with a machete through the p-stem and brought it into my heated front porch indoors and it always started growing right away so, in colder zones this seems a good way to go. It was too tall for me to leave it whole and bring in each fall. Don't ever worry about questions..... just how I learned here.
I still don't have a clue really ....

I'm sure you will Howard.... want a pup just say the word!.... Thanks man.

Bob, you've got a strong-looking plant so I'm guessing you'll get quite a few hands. Well-deserved reward for your hard work. Getting them to mature will be a challenge, I imagine. Better get some plans for a heated greenhouse!

Hey Matt, my neighbors must think I'm nuts and one last night was asking why we kept staring at the one plant every 5 minutes.... the cat's out of the bag. Hope I can get some to share. Might have to start thinking of fall protection to see if I can get some mature fruit.... should I get some going.
