Dwarf Red banana flowering, finally

It's only about 6 / ft tall.  The pseudostem is a bit small in diameter, and will need staking

Mine took just over 2 years to fruit (from a planted 3 gsl)  but it also went through hurricane Irma and was laying down after the storm. It started its second fruiting in December 2020 but it was hit by frost (35/36 degrees) earlier this month and all its leaves were toasted.  No idea how the fruit will fare.
