will my bananas ripen? or die?
A few years ago,my neighbor gave me a banana plant that I planted because I didn't want to hurt her feelings. To-day I checked the clump to see what I could do about cutting it down for the winter, and I noticed four little bananas, and a purple pod on a hung-over stalk, exactly like the picture on the heading for this forum.
Isn't it too late in the season for bananas?
It's planted next to the house on the South side, and the leaves are all brown above the edge of the roof, (we did get a snow flurry last week) and one big stalk bent at about 4' feet from the ground.
