Yes, we have no bananas

We thought that we had a non-fruiting banana tree - but this week we have noticed these...

We dont still have the label from the tree - so are thinking that maybe the fruit is not edible - but we will probably try it anyway.

When we planted this it was less than 4 feet tall - the fence behind is about 5 feet high which gives some scale.

My goodness - that banana really likes your garden! Actually the fruit looks like some wild exotic bird in the photo.
This seems to have been a good season for fruit. I have been making jam and so on, and already we are collecting blackberries.... and there are still all the plums to collect in France (assuming they are ripe when we are there next week).
