Default Contest Closed: September 2008 Contest...for One Hand of Praying Hands Fruit!!!!

Note: Contest is closed....now we wait for the bananas to ripen...any day now....


One guess…

North or South Raceme and date of first yellow banana…..

Make your guess quick,..once the date is gone (one for the North Raceme and One for the South Raceme)..it is gone!!

Here is the contest…dueling racemes of bananas…I have a huge matte of Praying Hands with two racemes…first guess which raceme NORTH or SOUTH will have a yellow banana first.. …....2nd guess the date of the first yellow banana within your Raceme...…only one pick per member…winner must guess the correct raceme and date of the first yellow banana.......

Grand prize is one huge hand of praying hands shipped express USPS anywhere within the continental United States…winners outside the continental United States will receive one hand dehydrated (takes a little longer)…

Good luck!!!

Most people seem to be guessing September.

I'll guess North, Sept. 20.

Thanks for the contest.

This non-fruited grower is shooting in the dark with absolutely no experience.... relying on what I've read and some inductive reasoning. I could be walking a fine line of pure stupidity! As long as I'm having fun though right?
