Benny,
Glad to see the CG is doing well!! I've been holding my breath hoping it would make it ok...
I look forward to a report on how well the fruit taste inspite of the weather..

Thank you Gina and Patty. I am also very excited hoping that it can wither this winter. It is always nice to look at it in the morning that it is still there.
We are almost out of the woods. The night temperature is not as cold as before . Provided that it stays this ways.
Yes, it's been so long now since I thought I was a newbie.
Ha-ha-ha!
You are always welcome to come to my place Patty.
You know, I still don't know how to cook a strawberry pancake syrup . I've been trying to look everywhere but what they say is just doesn't seem right. You know when you eat in a restaurant and serve you that syrup on top of your pancake?
I am tired of putting the regular syrup you buy in a bottle. OH, well it is just a wishful thinking.

Did you stand on a ladder to take that pic? How tall is the plant? Sure looks good!
How many nanas on it?

Congrats!

Thanks a lot guys, Island Casie, Patty and Harvey!
The nana bunches are less than 5 feet tall. But the P-stem is about 6 feet tall.
On its right side P-stem showing, is a dwarf Brazilian but it has 2 small bunches and they seemed they aren't growing(hidden from view). But I am hoping it will when the tempt goes higher come spring time.
Yes, Harvey, I just take it for granted and ignored it until when I saw it I told myself, hey,that's a nice one to take pictures.
Nowadays I am so busy doing my taxes and grafting the scions that we got last month at the scion exchange during my resting time.(And killing and hunting newly hatched snails).
It will be interesting because I have new plums, cherries, and peaches to graft and see them grow this summer. And maybe fruit.

Patty:
Correction : I measured it this morning: at the middle of the bunches it measured 4' 6" and the top of the Pstem meaning the top base of the fruit stem is 5'4".
I am going to take picture of the itty bitty fruit of my Brazilian next to CG soon.

and here's my Dwarf Brazilian fruit. Too bad it has only a few banana fruit. Don't know why.
Is there any hope that they will ripen?
Notice the CG in the background.

And BTW they are all planted and grown at my pergola plat.
