Diesel fuel for banana trees question

United Kingdom Gb


Im a little worried about something. I was fruit picking in Oz and was injecting the suckers of the banana trees with diesel though I spilt around 20-30ml at one stage.. Just worried that this will get sucked up by the roots and poison the bananas growing from the tree??

Im probably being stupid but could do with some reassurance





if the suckers die from the diesel it is in the main plant and clearly the fruit from the main stem is ok. strange job though!
