Everything is good. but everyone should learn a lesson from this. That is the key.

How to support a banana plant with fruit?
Your support should carry the weight of the bunch of bananas at the highest point of the stem, so that you are in effect hanging the bunch. With the weight supported there is no stress on the pseudostem.

If you support it anywhere lower, you are only moving the stress point when it is likely to snap off. ( pitangadiego )

With the last two bunches we've had, my wife has made pasteles. I picked them mature green, and the consensus of my in-laws was that those were the best pasteles they've ever had. I thought they were good also. I like to put a green salsa on them (tamatillo & Jalapeneos).

That's heresy among the Puerto Ricans I know. LOLOL
They don't smoke M J in Muscogee, and they don't eat Jalapenos in PR (with their pasteles, that is).
Me, I eat everything.

Just about every restaurant I went to in puerto rico they gave us a mix of ketchup and mayo to go with our tostones. Actually, they gave us the same sauce with sorullitos de maz as well.

My inlaws (Puerto Ricans) did not put "Green Salsa" on their Pasteles. I am not Puerto Rican so I tried it. It is fantastic. Now some of them (not many)actually enjoy Green Salsa on their Pasteles, as I do.

The pasteles my wife made with the SH 3640s were the best pasteles some of our family "experts" have ever had, or so they said. I do not deny being a "Heretic" when eating traditional ethnic dishes.

Ken ---- Thanks for the tip on using home grown green bananas for the masa. Trouble is, making pasteles yourself is a long drawn out laborius task.

Will see come the fall and winter holidays.
