Guess the Dwarf Namwa bunch size
 
Hmm ... I wonder what the total number of fingers will be in the bunch forming on my Dwarf Namwa? Guess the correct number and win a free banana pup of your choice from a list that will include Dwarf Namwa and other varieties I have at that time. Shipping via USPS is included in the prize, which includes most international 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.

Here are the contest rules:
