    I had a banana tree at the last house. Won't be getting another one. Very messy, lots of bugs and they all ripen at once.

    Congratulations!!!


    Not only am I jealous of your tree, but I'm jealous that you are able to eat them! I love avocados, but they hate me lol.

    Neat! I've never bought an avacado nor tasted anything made from one before. I lead a sheltered life. Gotta make that first ever margarita and guacamole party happen someday.

    Enjoy Ann!
