Fab :wine: We would be seriously in debt if bananas cost that much here as Darcy loves them!

Fantastic, well done. I just take it for granted bananas are always available, never imagined they could be that price :D

I bought myself 1 bannana as a treat about 3 months ago (it was over $2 just for 1 bananna :shock: :shock: and that was searching through for the smallest! ) but we haven't had them since late last year I'd say - or maybe early January before the floods. They got up to $20 a kg at one point :shock:

We had another bunch 2 years ago but we didn't know what to do and didn't leave them to ripen off the tree long enough so really hoping that we can get these edible (must be at least $100 worth of them :hohoho: )

Sell them to passers by and make yourselves a few quid :twisted:

Well done though - growing your own bananas is pretty cool :cool:

oh how i miss queensland bananas. sigh.

but at those prices, there's no chance i'd buy any. i was just saying the other day how just before we moved here banana prices averaged to about $1 AUD per banana (2005), and i can now buy a great big bunch for under £1. i hadn't even considered that they had become luxury items over there.

great bananas! I would send you some from the UK but those highly trained sniffer beagles would intercept them. They're my favourite kind of service dog :-)

Wow homegrown bananas :thumbsup: When you live in this part of the world you don't think of it as a "grow your own" fruit. Hope they are really yummy for you
