I have some banana trees in my back yard. the question
is, when the tree bears, when is it right to cut the bananas? is the
flower that hang from the bottom tell me any right time to cut. what is
it when i see the bananas cut from the tree and then hung up. thanks for
Bananas grown commercially are cut when green for shipping but since
they're in your backyard, perhaps not necessary to cut as early.
