This morning I decided to do a little maintenance on my banana trees. I have three baby banana trees all with fruits. My father taught me a trick on how to get bigger bananas, he told me that by cutting the flower off at the end of the stem when the bananas are small, the trees will channel all their energy on growing healthier and bigger fruits. (The bees will not be happy; they love the nectar from these flowers)
The banana flower looks like a heart and I am told they are edible and a delicacy in Southeast Asia.
