Bananas In Bloom

Banana blossoms

I inherited a few banana trees from the previous homeowner after I moved into the new house, and had read that some banana trees are ornamental and do not bear any fruit. Luckily for us (and for the bees), a couple of them have been showing off their exotic purple blossoms all summer with beautiful bunches of bananas hanging down. It’s like having a little slice of the tropics in my own backyard!

    The banana flower is edible and quite tasty. It requires a bit of effort to prep it properly to get the edible bits but it is worth it if done right. Try it if you haven’t already.

      It’s quite popular in Asian cooking, but the prep work makes me lazy. ;-)
