Leafless banana plant continues to strive


Another week has passed and the felled banana plant that has no leaves continues to strive at the home of SEARCHLIGHT reporter Audwin Andrews.{{more}}

Last week Monday, Andrews said there were only four hands on the bunch of fruit.

However, one week later, three more hands have grown.

Andrews said he deflowered the fruit on Saturday and from observations, it seems as though the fruit is maturing healthily.

The Ministry of Agriculture has said the plant might have flowered because it had accumulated a significant amount of nutrients before it was cut down a month ago.

The ministry said it is highly unlikely that the fruits will continue to full growth.
