English home grown bananas

After waiting unsuccessfully for a year for these Musa rajapuri bananas (as seen in the previous 8 images) to ripen, I had to cut them down and ripen them in brown paper bags, accompanied by a couple of ripe tomatoes!
They are about half the size of the regular 'cavendish' bananas seen in supermarkets but appear to be sweeter and have a stronger flavour!
Was it worth the wait? Well, there can't be many people in England eating their own home grown bananas, so at least I've realised an ambition. My next challenge is to eat home grown 'cavendish' bananas!
