Default USA only contest for a free Banana pup!

THIS CONTEST IS OVER! This Pisang Klotek bunch ended up having 248 fingers!! Congrats Patty!
This the hand and finger count. It was an odd one going back and forth on size, maybe due to the weather changing from warm to cold several times as they developed? First hand (top hand) to bottom hand in that order: 20, 21, 18. 20, 15, 16, 17. 15. 14. 14, 16, 17, 16, 16, 13





Here we go again! Win one free pup or rihzome of your choice from the following list.

Pisang Klotek
Hawaiian Apple
Jamaican Red
Dwarf Cavendish
Unknown possible Manzano
Misi Luki
Raja Puri
Stuttgart Canna Rihzome



Rules for this contest:
You must be a registered Bananas.org member as of 2-21-09 and live in the continental USA to enter.

One guess per member.

The closest guess without going over the actual number of fingers wins.

No guesses will be accepted after the deadline which is Sunday, March 8th at 12:00 pm PST.

Winner must pay in advance for USPS Priority shipping.

The plant will most likely be cut short to make the shipping easier. All roots will be removed, and all soil will be thoroughly washed off before shipping.



The contest: guess the total number of fingers/fruits on this Pisang Klotek bunch. No one from the board has seen the bunch yet, except me of course. This picture is from early Jan and the bunch has grown considerably since then. I think I'll be able to count the fingers about 30 or so days from now depending on the weather.



Good luck!

I don't know about that logic being this is the third time around with the PK. I'm sure some people will be looking back at previous final counts and seeing a pattern if ya know what I mean.

I think you would be wise to do some minor research and get a good number while you can! My Photo Gallery has a Pisang Klotek Folder to check out too.

EDIT: LOL, ok now I went and made this long post and you Got Me! I got ya down for 73!
