Here is Wally holding one of the bunches. You pick them green and it takes about a week for them to ripen. I had so many come at once I made banana bread. Oh my goodness, it was the best banana bread we have ever tasted. We had so many bunches we had a lot to share with the neighbors. It was a great calling card.

Apple Bananas Yum!!
Have I mentioned how much we love Apple Bananas? They are smaller than regular bananas but oh so delicious. I'm afraid we are banana spoiled now. Bananas will never be the same for us. It just so happens that where we are staying there are lots of Apple Banana trees in the yard. Here are Bonnie and Vince and Wally working in the yard. Bonnie's brother is the home owner. We had about 6 or 7 bunches of bananas that had to be cut down. The trees only put out one bunch and then you have to cut the tree down because they die. It doesn't matter though because they sucker up and you have a new tree before you know it.
