Itty-Bitty Bananas


Itty-bitty bananas are growing in our backyard. It's quite amazing. Don't let that photo fool you. I took it close up. They are truly very small bananas.

Bananas have grown before, but normally they sprout at the end of summer, then before you know it, the weather is cool, and so much for the fruit. This year though, ooh la la, we may be eating bananas from our trees.

  3. I think it is cool you can even grow these outside of the tropics.

    1. The plants themselves will grow anywhere that's warm. The fruit is another stale. When the frost hits our plants, we chop off the dead parts, and come spring, the plants are up and at 'em again.

  4. Those are freaky-looking.

    Also, McAfee Site Advisor warned me about visiting your blog for some reason. (?)

    1. I thought so, too, when I first saw them.

      Thanks for the heads up. I've checked and can't find anything wrong on my end.

  6. Wow, growing your own bananas is awesome. And food always tastes better if you grow it yourself.

    1. Definitely. Our backyard is a jungle because the Mama loves to garden. I love that we have persimmons, apples, lemons, Asian pears, avocados, and Blenheim apricots to eat.

    1. Maybe with a greenhouse. I think about making a makeshift greenhouse so the Mama can have fun growing tropical veggies.

  8. Cool! I hope you get some fruit. Ours can take at least 3 months to ripen, or more!
