You better get a net around those to stop the birds....
I'm noticing that some of the white areas are blushing a creamy yellow coloring. My in-laws are visiting from Iowa, so I'm gonna harvest tomorrow so they can take some with them. Pretty certain they are ready.
I've got 75 mangos (Hayden) peeled & cut up in the freezer for them. My Mother-in-law saw my Keitt Mango tree loaded with fruit and went bonkers.
Moose, those are some amazing bananas! I have had difficulty figuring out what conditions these are happiest in, and have lost a few plants in the process. My plant is wimpy compared to yours, but I can have hope yet. They seem to want some direct sun, but not too much, unlike most bananas that want to bask in all day sun. View attachment 19528

Dean - Since I have calcareous soil, not your fabulous volcanic soil, I have to do whatever I can to lower the pH level. When I peel my mangos, I save them in a 5 gallon bucket and spread them around the base of the banana stem. The microbes will attack then the happy earthworms will feast.
