Your small tree will be so tired.  Hope she rebounds after the fruits come off.
Yes i understand... so i should give her some fertilizer now or when fruit gets matured? Thank's!

Usually they grow much faster?

From flower to ripen fruits in about 5 to 5.5 months.
Not very good news for me then... this will go to December or January if it take untill the end... i will have to protect this fruits very well from cold temp.

This is probably Musa basjoo...
In forum bananas they say it's not a basjoo, probably is one orinoco... even so it's amazing how they survive there this years and stablished one comunity... i'm shure it's the only musa comunity stablished on a european river bed!

You should ask the property owner to let you get a sucker and try growing it out.
It would be great, but that's in the river. It's public and it's the municipality that is responsible for the river use... and i can't go there, just swimming or by boat.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: uses for Finger limes?
« on: July 24, 2021, 02:36:23 AM »
Can anybody suggest some good uses for these?  I have a handful of ripe ones but aside from the novelty I haven't found a good use where they clearly outshine regular lime juice.  So far they are good in fruit sherbert/ice cream.   I'm going to try in guacamole too. 

If they are resigned to the pure novelty bucket that is fine, I'll just keep mine pruned small.
Hi! fingerlimes are very very versatile. You can use them on almost everything! There are many recipes online...

Just some to have an idea...

Wow! Never would have expected that. Maybe itís that hardy musa that can take very cold temperatures? Donít know if people grow that there though.
Yes, this is all so strange and exciting... and having them growing them over the rocks and not on the river bed it's amazing!

This is a very hardy area more than mine... it's so incredible to have a musa colony self stablished in a portuguese river! I'm stoned! No one planted them! Of course they excaped some garden, some one trow them away and water river transport them to this location. This is really incredible... i have to talk with local authorities to protect them!

Today i saw this musa trees on river Almonda in Torres Novas. I was very surprised!

Yes I'm not expecting the fruit hold because the tree is small and its the first time. But it's good to see her fruiting so fast

My small Red Ivory mango tree is fruiting for the first time and survived to a tuff winter on a protected spot. I don't expect they will do it untill the end but it's great to see it fruiting. My biger gleen mango tree didn't fruit and it's near.

I have one rare variegated finger lime var. red champagne... didn't got fruits yet.

Hmmm ... I don't know if it's true. There is a pineapple plantation on the island S„o Miguel (under glass) because it's just too cold there.
Of course it's true. You have diferent micro-climates in same island. The only cofee plantation in Europe is in Azores.

Dry? No. There are some places more dry but not in general. The best places are on south coasts and low/protected areas.
