Most of my readers do not live in the tropics. Amongst other things this means you probably don’t grow your own bananas. We do and we do. If you look at this ‘painting’ you will see what could be thought of as a purplish elephants trunk. This is a banana blossom which will grow to between one and two meters long. At the top right of the blossom a petal has curled up to expose the first layer of bananas. Hopefully there will be between six and ten layers providing us with up to 100 bananas. As the process continues I will post more photo/paintings. And to answer the unasked question; yes you can, and we do, eat the banana blossom petals too.
