When we first moved to Maui, Chris planted some baby banana trees and we didn't know if anything would happen with them. But he watered them relentlessly in hopes of them fruiting someday. They were about 1 foot tall and they eventually grew to about 20 feet tall. We just chopped down this bunch of bananas the other day and they're ripening under our stairs. They're apple bananas which are the BEST and slightly tart. Really delicious. This bunch weighs about 35 lbs.
