Guess the Unknown Variety Contest!
 
Okay guys, here is another contest. I, nor anyone else has any clue what variety this is. So... lets start guessing!!!! I went out in my yard last week and noticed the newest leaf was slightly smaller than the last, but didn't think anything of it. Now around a week later the next leaf came out, half the size of the previous... so it's flagging time soon! The picture I provided below is the only picture that I will post and the only hint you get to guess the variety. No one in the forum has seen this in peson and size specifics will not be given out. I will make my best attempt to update the guessing at least once every day. Upon closing of the guessing I will begin to post pictures of the progress and give a more in depth description. Now for some rules:

You must be a registered Bananas.org member as of today, 7-2-08 to enter.
One guess per member.
A variety can only be guessed once, yet something such as "dwarf orinoco" and "orinoco" will be considered two seperate varieties.
Any e-mails to myself, MediaHound, or any judge asking for specifics or opinions on the variety will be an automatic disqualification and if a guess has already been made, that guess will be free to be guessed again.
This contest guessing will cease upon MediaHounds discression or when the guesses just begin to just get crazy (eg: truly tiny).
Judges will be appointed by MediaHound and will not be eligible to guess.
When the fruit has ripened each judge will have a few shipped to them and the judges will determine the variety.
The winner determined by the judges shall receive a free pup and possibly some fruit with free shipping to any continental US address, in the case of an international winner, the winner can deem a US friend to receive the pup, or pay for shipping into their country (I would need your help to get paperwork together to prepare for customs in your country).

Sandy has to be placed down here cause she just wants a "hand" (does that mean you want us to all clap for ya? LOL) if magicgreen wins (Ice Cream)!

Great contest, good luck everyone!
If anyone wants to judge, please let me know.
I suppose we could do three or four judges but you guys cannot vote in the contest, so keep that in mind!
Good luck!!!
