Default Guess the "Bencelest" banana bunch size

A few years ago I received a banana plant from Bencelest which he believed to be a Sweetheart. Some discussion and photos can be found in the Sweetheart (FHIA -3) banana thread. The second generation pup flowered and set fruit in October.

Guess the correct total number of fingers that formed and win a prize. If no one guesses the correct number then the closest guess wins. If there are two "closest" guesses, then two prizes will be awarded.

The prize will be a bag, bottle, or box of fertilizer (up to $20 value) or your choice of banana pup from those I have in stock, including shipping via UPS or USPS, which includes most international locations.

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