What the Ho-Ho-Ho? Bananas growing in Northern Cali? Yep, right around the corner from my house. A neighbor planted some very large banana plants last spring and to everyones surprise one of the plants actually has bloomed (the inflorescence) with several rows of hands (each row of hands contain “fingers”) appearing. The bloom stalk measures about 30"-so far and it is not going to be very happy tonight-major frost and cold temperatures are in the weather forecast.
