Will they survive with fruit?

I have two bananas I managed to keep alive during winter. Now after setting one leaf each I now see a flag leaf on both. Can they survive and produce the fruit with just one leaf plus the flag leaf?...

Re: how many hours can banana take of 32 degree?

So most of the bananas survived 31 with a few with leaf damage. However on Tuesday they predict 28... After that it will warm up nicely. I would really like to keep them in the ground a bit longer...

Re: Who thinks Blue Java or Namwa?

At what point in time do the bananas turn blue due to the coating on the skin? If they get to a decent size and they don't look blue than I assume it is Namwah right?

Also the brown spot doesn’t seem hard just soft...

Re: Weird spots on flesh of my first harvested sweetheart banana

Re: Is this a disease or damage from chlorinated water?

Well, chlorine level was low due to the rain. I always try to stay away from adding during the rains since it will overflow. So it might then have just been sitting in water and could that have...
