Trifecta on the Plantation

The third banana plant arrived today at the Dove Avenue Plantation, this one by mail, carefully boxed up and in good condition, from Stokes Tropicals. This one is known as an "Ice Cream" or "Blue Java" banana, an irresistible name. It's the one on the left in the photo.

That gives us a Cavendish from Lowe's, a Goldfinger from Katie's Going Bananas, and this Ice Cream from Stokes Tropicals.

Three's a charm. Now we give them tender, loving care for about a year as they grow up. In about six months after that, we may well be awash in bananas. What joy!
