Lady Finger Bananas


My two Ladyfinger Banana Plants have fruits; this weekend I noticed the two cluster of bananas growing on each tree.

The Ladyfinger Bananas are sweet thin-skinned and shaped like a cigar, these bananas are not like the one’s for sale at the local supermarket, they can be found in specialty markets, and are very popular in Latin America.

I did not go to the Mango Festival at Fairchild gardens this weekend, unfortunate my garden companion Rosie was ill. On Friday she had her teeth cleaned and she had a bad reaction to the anesthesia, my wife and I spend the weekend going to the vet’s office and one trip to the pet emergency hospital. She is doing much better today and is slowly getting back to normal.

These taste so much nicer than that supermarket forced ripen cavendish! When we were children all we had were these tasty and aromatic varieties-sucruiere, gros michel, silk, red bananas etc.

That is great, I love Banana Trees even just the ornamental ones. I have a Cavendih that I am waiting on at my house.
