You are learning that you should never give up on a banana, until it is just an empty hp;e in the ground.

I will never give up on one again that's for sure
Do you think this thing will still fruit next year ?

You didn't say how big it was, but I am guessing, by the fact you "repotted" it, that it will not bloom next year. Mine are about 10-11' of trunk when they flower. I have one bunch hanging and another flowering right now.
