Blue Java (Ice-cream Banana)
In QLD you need permission from the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to grow bananas in the backyard. We sort permission and purchased the plants from the preferred supplier and they have now been growing happily for around 12 months.

We have the Blue Java and Duccasse varieties growing. The Blue Java apparently tastes like vanilla ice-cream. Looking forward to them fruiting.

I thought the overlapping branches form interesting shape and texture.
