ice cream banana

ormondronAugust 25, 2013

I think I could use some advice.

I have an Ice Cream Banana clump of plants that produce very little. This year one of the plants developed what looked like it was going to produce some fruit. It developed three hands and just stopped producing. The image on the top right of this page is a perfect example of what is happening.

Any suggestions?

Try re-posting your pictures. Blue java is not my favorite it takes a long time to fruit and seems to always flower just before winter. Try a monthly fertilizer regimen when they are putting out leaves. Many people swear by the special banana fertilizers .I have started adding more short cycle bananas and getting rid of the plants that dont seem to produce in a year or 2.
