Bananas dropping off the vine

I have several banana trees in my yard. Two of the trees recently began to bloom, but as soon as the flower opens up
the bananas fall off. The trees are healthy and get full
sun. This is the second year it's happened.
Any ideas?

RE: Bananas dropping off the vine

This is my first time with bananas but I did notice mine were going gang-busters until we had a bit of a cold snap (it dropped to the high-50's at night) and I didn't water as much. Then the newly formed ones dropped off but as soon as I picked up the watering, they stopped dropping (didn't form any new ones but kept the 'older' ones)

So could it be decreased temps or lack of water?
