Banana fruiting question
For the first time ever, I have an inflorescence on one of my banana plants. (If it matters, the plants are supposedly Dwarf Cavendish, but these are a good 12' tall.)
The problem is that the inflorescence is very recent, and there are only 4 or 5 hands of fruit showing. First frost is usually around Thanksgiving here.
I'm assuming these baby bananas are just doomed.
But I was wondering: if I cut off the rest of the inflorescence, would the plant mature those 4 or 5 hands any faster? 4 or 5 hands would be better than none.
Thanks for any insight anyone may have, even if it us just to say, "They're doooooomed!"
