I shoulda called this banana poker LOL. I'd like to guess 200 and raise you all 100 Bucks. I wanna play... can I, can I!!!?
I understand much more seeing it in person rather than pics. I couldn't tell what a 'hand' was until now. First hand is out w/ 2nd on its way WooHoo.
What I still don't understand is what are male & female flowers?

Congrats Patty! You'll know what a male flower once you see one. They are much smaller and attached to tiny fingers that shrivel up and turn brown even falling off in most cases.

Thanks Momo. What shrivels up & falls off? The tiny fingers or the small flower? Do the male flowers come towards the end or scattered?
Hey you, where's your guess? Awww C'mon, it's all in fun
RaverBoi, thanks but I don't think I should change the thread name now or some ppl won't find it. Unless you change it to:
Guess how many I.C. fingers ... Banana Poker!
That would be nice
OK, I'm officially entering my guess as 200 LOL. Don't worry ...I won't win, it's just for fun.
AND, I RAISE EVERYONE 100 Banana Bucks
So, from now on, all new entries will cost 300 BB's.
I saved all the pm's donating the BB's so I am keeping very good track.
The winner will get 300 BB's for every name entered.

Like this. This was a Cavendish I believe, they tend to hold the male flowers even after they have shriveled and turned brown. You can see the fingers that the female flowers were attached to at the top of the pic. See the size difference?

Done! People should still be able to find it just fine cause the name didn't change much....and it's really the only active contest right now anyway.

Best of luck to everyone and most importantly, have fun!

Someone's gonna be very rich. Unluckily, such amount of wealth will only kick Tog Tan's name off from the "most banana bucks" table. It's amazing how much he contributed to this site. Really fascinating.
