Default 6-5-2015 Fruit count contest!!

My Pisang Ceylon is churning out fruits. 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.

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!

Sweet contest! Blind, and two potential winners.
Tip: Space your votes out properly and work as a team to increase your chances to win.
Not only a game of luck, but a game of skill.
Good luck to all!

While I do not have a Pisang Ceylon myself, I have seen photos of the banana bunch. This plant can produce monster bunches when it is really happy! I'll guess an even 100.

Richard, with your setup and the great Fruit Fuel" it has to be at least 125. Anything less than that and you have to rethink your garden concept or change the Fruit Fuel Formula.
Just kidding, thanks for putting out this fun contest. BTW: when does the contest end? At harvest time in about 6 month? I do not think that I have that much patience....

WOW!!! I want in.
I can use the Fruit Fuel.
This a photo is a plant without Fruit Fuel.
My guess is 115.

If I do win you may substitute Fruit fuel to another fine product.
I just checked with Legal.... and they said I cannot post photos of before and after pics.
