Ha, SO did mine. Last time around it flowered in December, its bad timing is making me want to give up on IC altogether.

I Hope all turns out well, keep us updated with more pictures. Please

Three dwarf Cavs, one brazilian, one tall oronico and an unknown. I was hoping my AeAe was going to fruit but not yet. How are you and your plants?

Andrew, my plants and I are doing well, thanks for asking. My knee is nearly back to normal, 2 months out from arthroscopic surgery. All my bananas seem to be happy (aside from a calcium deficiency in two, which is making them grow with tangled and twisty leaves). The plants I've had longest have only been in the ground for 6 months, so I just have to wait for them grow, though I'm impatient for fruit. Several have 1-3 pups. I'm hoping my dwarf Orinoco will send out a bud soon because the p-stem is over 5' now, but I'll just have to wait and see.

Fifteen feet give or take a foot. The plant has been in the ground two years. I planted three at the same time. This is the only one to fruit so far.

Well after removing so many mature plants last year I only have three bunches hanging right now. This weather is really odd! We should be having Santa Ana winds and fires now, instead I think I've been transported to Oregon.

Awesome congrats on your IC!

I have two IC flowers opening this week and think I could maybe get another 2-3 buds before December. I'm too hoping for a mild winter! One thing though, ICs grow fast in temps far below others. I think they grow above 54F or so.

I'm hoping for a frost free winter So far year 2010 has been above 32 and frost free. Let's hope it it continues!

I hope it is a mild one! You did not have much heat above 100 this year. Congrats on your Ice Creams!

Anytime! I just cut down a Tall Orinoco stalk last weekend. They were getting too ripe so I peeled them and froze them for shakes. Nothing like organic bananas that I grew for my shakes! (Organic Papaya, Organic Guava, Pineapple, Organic Strawberries, Organic Coconut flakes, Organic Blueberries, Organic vanana Trader Joes yogart, Organic apple juice, Organic orange juice and my bananas). I have a sweet tooth! I grow many of the fruits and buy the rest. My guava trees are full of fruit that should ripen Dec/Jan. Last year I got 300 plus guavas!
