Pisang Tanduk, first harvest.

It started with five banana seedlings of pisang tanduk variety middle of last year, two died, and the other three survived to maturity. One plant with little banana fruits got blown down by strong wind  a month back . The other two manage to stay upright and finally bear lovely fruits. The bananas are big and long, eight altogether in a comb.  Kakdah gave a few to neighbour and friends.
