Default 2015-06 Namwa count contest!!

My Namwa is now sporting a bud. Perhaps it took its cue from the Pisang Ceylon? The pstem height is 10.5 feet and the base diameter is about 10.5 inches.

Guess the correct total number of fruit fingers that form and win a free 5-lb bag of Fruit Fuel -- including free shipping to USPS locations. If no one guesses the correct number then the closest guess wins. If there are two "closest" guesses, then two prizes will be awarded. Only one guess per person, and no duplicate guesses please.

Reply to this thread to place your guess.

Here are the official contest rules (PLEASE READ):
Rules of the contest forum, read before posting!
Good luck to all!

I believe a University of Georgia study showed that bananas which budded earlier in the year usually have lower numbers so 140.
