Did you really tell your wife that ? ? ? ? ? ? The reason my wife lets me get my way most of the time is that I tell her that she is my only happiness!

I think this is going to be my biggest bunch ever - about 13 hands so far each of about 18 fingers. As you see I took off some leaves to get a clear view of the fruit as they form on this monster - even bigger than my Orinoco which is saying something. Pup was planted 2nd October 2007 and took off like a rocket. Mark - this one is twice the size it was when you saw it! Prolific pupper too as it has 6 left after I took off another 8. Love it!!

There's no way we can grow that kind of nanas in our zone. We'll just have to settle for less bunch. But they can not grow apples, cherries, oranges like we do here as an antidote for our feelings.

Yep Benny - I would die for cherries or stone fruit - tulips and daffodils too - but now I enjoy the moment!! Every region has its blessings and we should take advantage of them while we can. Can't grow tomatoes or peppers here either - too humid. So grow what you can and compost the rest is what I say! lol!

Wow, you will have lots of bananas alright. I need to stop looking in these threads or I'm going to think my IC's are sick next year. I'll be lucky if my main stem is as big and healthy looking as your pups, LOL. Congrats on the bloom and hands.

Sorry Guys and Dolls:
When I told my wife that I added of course, you are my only TRUE happiness.Bananas is only second. Heh-heh! It's hard to get out of that one.
But truly, she let me do what I want to do outside now. She used to complain a lot.
Now, I don't know. She does not even care what I spend on my projects. But then I don't use her credit card anymore. Maybe that's the answer.
