Here now: red bananas

     In a blog post I uploaded just over a month ago were three pictures of a tiny new red banana tree taken over a three-week period; and another picture showing a nearly adult red banana tree photographed under the new power lines (where many of our banana trees are planted since they pose no threat to the power lines).
     In that post I wrote that for some reason red banana trees grow taller then their yellow banana producing cousins...and that since we didn't have any red banana trees producing yet, the picture of the red bananas in the post was not of bananas at False Bluff.
     That was all in the December 14 blog post. Things have changed. The bananas in this picture are now hanging on the tree under the power line that was shown in that December post.
