My pisang seribu is fruiting- any recipes or ideas on what to do with the fruits? I know the resident squirrel and birds are going to love it, but such a shame to leave the fruits all to them. maybe I'll do a count to see if it really reaches 1,000 fruits HAHAHA

Sounds interesting but I have no idea what kind of pisang (banana?) that is...

Mind to post a picture as well as the scientific name? :grin:

Dunno the scientific name, the name translates to " a thousand fingers banana". The fruits are small, like small finger sized only and jam-packed in whorls of fruits

aiyo, is that the 'pontianak' thing again?
The fruiting 'thing' is so huge, we have to have 2 stakes supporting the plant just it case it comes crashing down

Cleaned up the entire monster to reveal this:

The flower bud was later removed to allow the fruits to form better. This is pisang seribu :grin:

Can those bananas be eaten?

With that quantity I think we can get diarrhoea from eating them all! :nocomment:

HA HA! They can be eaten but i haven't before. Will have the opportunity soon I guess. In a posting started by Boon Boon, he'd asked if we were to grow 1 plant, which plant would we choose, and I had answered a banana plant. They are plants which promote goodwill cuz we really have to share the fruits- otherwise, get diarrhoea HA HA!!

yes! I have 2 long-tailed macaques in the area, very naughty. They've been hanging around but the fruits are still very green
The squirrels are faster though- I'm betting they will have the first bite !

hey hortvet,

you know of anywhere i can get the sucker or buy the thousand finger banana?

just made huge accident in garden..what i thought initially was a musa velutina turned out to be a pisang raja which has taken root as i bought the tiny thing for 3 dollars when it was a six inch thing (u dont really see 6 inch pisang rajas..)...and is one and a half storeys tall now and fruiting...

will have horrible time trying to think of how to remove the entire thing after the fruits are ripe...sigh...probably have to get some workers to help dig it up...

but surprisingly,. i got so huge cos the area its planted in is very wettish...have leaky tap there...so i guess its very happy, furthermore i fed it alot...haha...but i have just discovered that it is the wrong banana!!! haha

anyway, have had phobia of bananas for the past couple of weeks aft6er wrecking my brains on how to get rid of it...but the pisang seribu looks lovely....recently got some 100 litre drums...so guess will use one to plant it.

just dunno where to get it...they use it as an ornamental in saigon, vietnam...but it was too huge to cart back... :grin:
