When will the bananas be ripe?

Since one month now, I have followed the evolution of a banana tree in "my" park. I'm amazed by the speed it grows. I will continue to watch it, but perhaps not quite so often.

I'm just as amazed at the speed of growth Peter. There is one over at block's backyard....one moment I saw bunches of bananas, next it's gone too :)

Intersting.. seriously, banana can grow in Paris? :p

I thought it's a tropical fruit :D

Anyway, thanks for visiting my blog and have a nice day :)

So you agree it's a banana plant?

Ce post me fait rire, il est super bien mis en page, il est drôle
Ces bananiers qui sont le même bananier disposés le uns près des autres
On dirait les Dalton !
Tu sais que les bambous aussi ça pousse très vite ?
Avec les feuilles de bananier ont peut faire de délicieuses papillottes, mais je ne te vois pas te relever la nuit pour aller en catimini déplumer ce malheureux plant !

What you do is just amazing. Nice to see something is growing. Very quick though.

Bonne idée Cergie!Peter devrait aller pêcher un poisson dans la Seine (il parait qu'ils remontent le cours)et nous inviter à le déguster, cuit dans une palme de bananier!!

When I published the first photo, April 9, I did not know what kind of plant this is. Different comments (the first one from hpy) have made me understand that it must be a banana tree. Yes, it is a bit surprising to find such a plant here. I'm courious to see what will happen to it before next winter.

Cergie, oui j'ai mangé des plats excéllents avec des feuilles de bananier en papillottes, y compris au Vietnam ("ton" pays). Je pense que je vais laisser ces feuilles tranquilles. Les portes du parc ferment à 21h30 et il faut éscalader des grillages...

lyliane said...

Tu es encore très souple et capable d'escalader ces petites grilles pourtant!!...

hpy said...

Ce n'est pas tellement étonnant de voir des bananiers à Paris. En Normandie il y en a tout plein, et finalement ce n'est pas si loin...

Tu en as dans ton jardin?

Dina said...

did you know that Sarko was here in Malta with his little ship/big yacht!! he was in the news papers yesterday

Peter said...

dina:

Yes, we know. This has been the major subject in our news media the last couple of days. Not because of his choice of going to Malta, but because of the private jet, the 60 meter yacht etc., somehow in contrast with his nice speaches before and just after the election.

Anyhow, Im' sure he, family and friends enjoyed their stay on and around your island!

"Tagada, tagada, voilà les Dalton
Tagada, tagada, voilà les Dalton
C'étaient les Dalton

I believe there will be no bananas (too cold), but the speed at which the leaves grow is amazing!

Nathalie:
Too bad! (Even if the summer is extremely nice?)
