Does anyone know if you can eat the fruit of the Musa Basjoo plant. I thought it did not bear fruit. I got that wrong! Our plant has about 3 tiny hands of green bananas, will the flower stem die after the flower has finished. I wonder if it is flowering because we live on the south coast or do other people have fruit.

I've never tried a banana tree. What sort of conditions do they like ?

Hello Hywel, our soil is good old Sussex clay and our orginal plant has had a least seven babies, so I guess they will go just about anywhere
