Default My First bunch!

My Ice Cream has started to flower and is now showing some naners! This is my first crop of Bananas and I am so proud of them. I think this might be a small harvest but I am happy just to see the fruit!

Yes, congratulations Mike. My Ice Cream just flowered as well. I have two hands showing but unfortunately, I think that might be it. It looks like yours is still going to produce more hands. Best of luck.

The p stem is just a hair over 8' and the lowest hand is hanging at 7' right now.
I can see four hands total right now and think that might be it.

This is what it looks like from the side.



This is how the bunch looks today.

The flag showed up Earl April, the flower bud poked it's head out toward the end of April and just this weekend it started to open and show me the little bananas.
