Banana Flower

I love Bananas. … And these small flowers are where some bananas will come from. The flower heart is edible, and is eaten like an artichoke.

As the fruiting body (inflorescence) grows larger and longer, the rows of red sheathing that are the flower heart, open one at a time, and expose the flowers in sets of flowers.

In this image the flowers are juicy, and beautiful. The color of the heart is rich and powerful.
