Default Musa Basjoo blooming very early

I posted some pics of my Musa Basjoo in the members gallery. I have 2 blooms already. It's still very early here along the Gulf Coast of Alabama and most of my plants are just starting to turn green but it looks as if my Basjoos have been growng during the winter. I did protect my Raja-Puri and Cavendish but not the Basjoo. I have not had much luck with Musa Basjoo since I started with them for the past 3 or 4 years but they look to be over 8 ft. tall right now and very healthy. Man I wish those were an edible type fruit.

I had 5 basjoos flower during the summer of 2009. I'm still waiting on my sikkimensis to bloom.
