Dwarf ducasse bananas

The first bunch of Dwarf Ducasse Bananas from the garden. It's a small bunch compared to the next lot coming along.
Cut just today, they are now hanging around under the back pergola.
It's the first time in 4 years that we've had fresh bananas from the yard.

Congratulations Rob :) I loved mine. As Elaine says, great for dehydrating.

I never had a problem with my DD plants falling over even with a bunch on.

Thanks for the tips and especially the bits!

I know you are far more familiar with this plant in particular :)

I must thank you Elaine for all your support you have given me with this plant. I simply would not have any bananas if it weren't for you ;)  ... pending on ripening timing, a hand from this bunch or a few hands from the next bunch coming your way!

They are scrumptious Bananas, nice and spicy and they dry well, too. With the bigger bunches I found the stems bent over to the ground (only held up by the bunch) and needed some support. Even though I planted the baby plant up the the neck as I was instructed. Anyway if you find you need a support there's info on the net (!) and a tripod with the support under the bunch stem seems to be the most successful.
