Wild Banana Fruiting

The wild banana tree that I planted a couple of months ago at my front garden in Kuching is starting to flower and bear fruits at the same time. The terminal spike is of very dark purple and so are the very tiny fruits. The spikes ( especially the inner layers of its bracts) are smoked and eaten raw as salad. In the deep jungle the fruits are diet for the wild animals especially monkeys.
