The bracts on my basjoo are a similar size but burgundy in colour.
And the fruit is longer.

He lives about 2 hours from me and was so excited. I told him I would not hold out hope.
He is excited to know he finally got some fruit even though from what I read they are not edible. Is that true?

It was a corm or a TC plant?.......It can be the growing and/or environmental conditions, history of the plant!......
