Hey Janice-

Those flowers look to be some kind of Sparaxis bulb (South African).

Those bananas look like "Apple Bananas". Andy's mom has some growing in her backyard here in Hawaii. The way we ripe them over here is to just let them sit in a basket.

Apple bananas are more tart and they have a stronger "banana" taste than the common banana. I LOVE them because they don't really get mushy and mealy even when the skin starts browning.
