    The banana fruit grow in hanging clusters, with up to 20 fruit to a tier (called a hand), and 3-20 tiers to a bunch. The total of the hanging clusters is known as a bunch, or commercially as a "banana stem", and can weigh from 30–50 kg. The fruit averages 125 g, of which approximately 75% is water and 25% dry matter content. Each individual fruit (known as a banana or 'finger') has a protective outer layer (a peel or skin) with a fleshy edible inner portion. Typically the fruit has numerous strings (called 'phloem bundles') which run between the skin and the edible portion of the banana, and which are commonly removed individually after the skin is removed. Bananas are a valuable source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, and potassium.

    Banana trees bare fruit only once. After the tree sends out its fruit the tree will start to die, but before it does, the plant will send out at least one new shoot at the bottom of the old tree. If you don't cut the old tree down it will eventually die, and the plant will look messy. Banana trees, like many other plants, including lawn grass, and some orchids, replenish or reproduce by growing new plants out of their rhizomes.

    Well done!!!
    The tree will only bear fruit the one time but don't cut it immediately.
    You should see some new growth coming from the ground which will be the stem or tree for the next batch. Onceyou see this new evidence then cut down the old branch but make sure to use a clean sharp blade to prevent any infection.
    Enjoy your home-made bananas. Wow!!!
