Last weekend, two of our banana trees fell over during a rain storm. Unbeknown to us, one of the trees had a large bunch of bananas on it. The bunch had completely detached from the tree so we hauled it down to our house .... they are very heavy.
Here's what we got, still unripened.
With some difficulty because of the weight, we managed to hang it up and the bananas will ripen. Sometimes it seems like it happens all at once and there is no way we can use all of them. Today, two were ripe at the bottom. A fresh picked banana tastes so much better then the ones we used to buy in grocery stores in Canada.
We'll be sharing some of these with our neighbors.
