I am such a garden geek. We cut down the first stalk of apple bananas a few weeks ago and I thought it would be at least  few months before any of the other trees flowered. I check daily and today, I noticed another flower! Did you know a banana tree never produces fruit twice? Cut down the mother tree after harvest and keikis ( pups) will grow from the base, giving you new trees. Once the flower appears, it can take from 9-12 months for your stalk of bananas to be ready to harvest.
