WoW!
78 people opened the thread and not 1 response....
Is everyone else stomped also?
Maybe I should email the owner.
Looks like he amputated the pstem ahead of the flag
and the flower bud came out after the amputation?

Anyone else tried this?
I always thought the more leaves you have
esp during gestation the better
so the fingers plump and fill up properly?

Any thoughts?

I was one of the 78. I think you are right. The stem was cut for whatever reason. Probably for overwintering indoors. It also makes the bananas easier to pick. You don't need a ladder.

Yes, if you cut enough of banana p-stems, that will happen occasionally. If the fruit mature (they probably wouldn't in the example shown in the photo), they will be much smaller and fewer than a bunch from that plant if the p-stem hadn't been chopped.

That's Raja Puri that he tried to protect for the winter. But the bad winter took out the plant so he trimmed it and up came a bud.

Actually it's very common for us northern growers. I usually have one a year. I'll try to post a picture of mine later today or tomorrow.
