Banana tree (follow up)

Just a small report on how the banana tree in “my” park is growing. I took a first picture of it April 9 and have given some in between reports. Here is what it looked like June 16. I still have great hopes to see some bananas on it!

Je suis un peu déçue, to bananier pousse moins vite qu'il ne promettait !

Keep us updated on this please. It is going to grow tall.

I had some banana trees in my backyard with full of bananas, so I know how they look like ;)

P.S.- I am in the middle of two trips, just trying to hop into some blogs. ;)

It is not yet this year that one will be able to be made "a banana slip"!!

I was honest, I put the "quote" signs!

Others:
Some seem to be more optimistic than others about the chance to see some bananans on this tree! I'm still hoping!

lyliane:
I may have to buy my banana for the "banana split"!

Ton "banana tree" a bp changé en deux mois. Mais j'ai du mal à croire qu'il donnera des bananas un jour. Espérons quand même et on verra bien.

I think it is an Abysinian banana palm. We had one in our back yard in Melbourne. It grew very big very quickly and produced an extroadinary flower like a giant Triffid.This in turn bore bunch of fruit however the stunted green fingures never reached maturity and eventually turned black. We obviously don't have the right weather to eat bananas straight off the palm but it was a joy to witness the progress.
