Default Re: My first flag leaf! woo hoo!

Funny thing is this plant was destroyed by the cold. All the leaves were gone and I thought I was just going to get some pups up from the bottom like I have on most of the other plants that were in the ground during the cold winter we had. But it shot out some new leafs and went crazy once it warmed up...

So when should I expect some fruit to eat?

Congratulations! I wish I could answer your question (when should I expect some fruit to eat?) but I'm still learning the connection between flag leaves and bananas, lol. Thanks much for the photo.

About 4 to 6 mos. depending on how many leaves are left to ripen the fruit.
Congrats on the flag and fruit!

Well CONGRATS!! To get a flag leaf on the most wanted plant (other than Ae Ae) has to be a real thrill!
The flower is out on my Ice Cream, so I'll share the excitement!! Keep us posted with pics. My pics are in the 'container' thread. I'll take more pics soon.
