Default Monster Saba "Stump"

Because of cold weather a few days ago I had to cut down my favorite banana, a Musa Saba. I was surprised at how big the "stump" was after I removed the rest. Tha'ts the biggest I have ever seen around here...







For comparison, here's a before pic...

DId you junk the p-stem already? Wondering if you measured just the p-stem . i am trying to get a realistic idea of height and girth of a fruiting saba in and around my zone. I dont pay much attention to data taken in more tropical environments.

NeedForSeed: I just cut it off right at the top of the psuedostem and then let it go with no protection. These things are TOUGH.

Okay I just pulled a tape on it, it was 11.5" (just to be clear, I'm talking about the Saba Stump ;-)

That's hilarious! I'll get some pictures on here at some point but I've not thought to measure them. It's possible I have some (two out of five Saba that are big) that are a bit bigger than that. No fruit this year though. They're all trimmed now. I trimmed all the bananas in one yard - about 200 plants - from the recent freeze. Started stinkin' already.

Why exactly did you have to cut all the leaves off the bananas?
