Default 2018 Namwa bunch size contest

Back by popular demand!

My "Namwa" banana cultivar is currently endowed with an inflorescence of bananas. Colloquially we refer to it as a "bunch", which is further divided into "hands" (sometimes what you get at the grocery store, although more often half and quarter hands), and finally "fingers" -- the individual banana fruits (what you'd normally count at a grocery store).

This contest is to guess how many fingers are in this bunch. The final count will be determined by the almighty banana counter *Janet* after said bunch is hung in the garage. Historically, at least one person has matched every contest.

All guesses (entries) will be tabulated on this site and a few other participating sites. Any and all entries that match the actual count will receive a free 5-lb bag of "18-8-24 Fruit Fuel Fertilizer" shipping charges included -- provided the USPS delivers to your city, state, and country (a surprising number of countries qualify).

Winners will be notified by personal message. If you don't wish to receive a prize that's fine -- you'll still get the glory!!

Disclaimer: I am 100% retired. I do not receive any income, royalties, etc. from distribution of this product nor will I share your mailing address with anyone. In fact, I'll keep it in a separate directory.
