I realize this is slightly off topic, but does anyone know if there is some sort of record (Guiness?) on the most bananas on a bunch? I think it'd be very interesting to know what it is!

We will be cutting down the raceme this weekend and I should know the total figures by Monday (perhaps) - with very sticky fingers as this variety "drools" a lot. Final count will include only those fingers outside the bracts at the time of cutting! Last guesses please!

And to believe I ever doubted that this plant could ACTUALLY produce the measly 1000 fingers...

Congrats Island Cassie on counting all of those, and Bch Grl on being the closest!

Yeah, Taylor...I was with ya on that. First time I ever saw an ad for 1000 fingers, I was like...'yeah....riiiiight.' But apparently it's capable of over 3 TIMES that!!! (and who knows what it could potentially do!?)

Great job with your TF, Cassie. Thanks for sharing the great pics, the fun contest and the story to go along with your progress. This has been very interesting and fun. Now go eat some bananas!!! My guess is that you still have a few left!! :ha::ha::ha:

Thank you all for joining in!! Bryan - fortunately a lot of the fruit are really tiny so we don't have to eat our way through them all. I guess only about 600 are big enough to bother with - about 1.5 inches long. Just as well as I have a bunch of ice creams turning yellow too!!!:ha:

This is them at the end - see how tiny a lot of them are! The biggest are 1.5 inches long!!

Congrats Bch Grl!

Did you double check your count? Might have missed one or two.:nanadrink:

Re: 1000 fingers contest
 
Haha Steven - get your binoculars out and get counting!!

Wow!!! I'm speechless! Cassie, what a job, thanks for the contest and taking the time to count all those 'naners! And thanks to all the donors of the prize "bucks"!

The pics helped a lot in my final guess. I never would have guessed that high if I hadn't seen the pics. I'm with ya'll, Who woulda thunk it!

Now, to find and fruit one of those. What a cool plant!

Thanks again to all who made this possible!
