Default Guess the Dwarf Orinoco bunch size

Its time to play ... Guess the bunch size (number of fruit fingers) !!

Guess the correct total number of fingers that form on my Dwarf Orinoco 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 5-lb bag of 20-5-30 Banana Fuel including shipping via USPS, which includes most international locations.

Here are the official contest rules (PLEASE READ):
Rules of the contest forum, read before posting!
Here is a picture of the bud on 6/6/2011:
