Ice Cream Banana (Young Plant)
Bunch of baby Musa in my back yard. Tree is over 15 ft. tall. Had to use a ladder to get the picture.
Musa flower 6 cm. long. Will grow into a 25 cm. apple flavored banana in a few months.
Early first bloom of the year.
A close up view of the bloom.
Small bananas with remains of flowers still attached. Growing very fast now.
This is the first time I have caught the blooms full open. It was only for 15 minutes.
Dependable and delicious, each trunk yields at least forty bananas
