photo hunters

Today's theme is Pink.

Presenting something different ~ the non edible Pink Banana or Musa Velutina Pinkie. Photo taken at Unker's house in Kuching, Sarawak.

The banana tree looks exactly like the normal banana trees except the fruit is pink in colour :)

Mine is called "Pink in Deadwood." (It's not a flower.)

Ehon said...

ahhh, you know what... a thought just came to me:

yellow banana - refers to chinese, 'cos we yellow mah.

pink banana - refers sunburnt angmoh, 'cos they turn pink under the sun?

ok ok, that was such a baaaaaaad joke!

*cabut*

Chen said...

beng beng,

Kakkkaka.. what a joke :P

Thinking about the black banana (neh, the rotten banana if left over-ripe and untouched) - this one refers to... *ahem*

Err.. Why is the pink banana species not edible? I've never seen bananas in other colours other than yellow!

jmb said...

Great photos for the theme. I've certainly never seen that plant, too bad you can't eat them.

Andrée said...

that looks like a very tall plant; it is gorgeous.

Chen said...

doreen,
nice to see and nice to take photo.
and the banana is very lasting. Hehehhe.. It's not edible leh from the info gathered from the net. And the fruit is very hard. Even the birds are not interested :P

dino,
Hehhee, pink baju?
the colour is indeed matching with the pisang merah jambu. I presume u luv pink very much ;)

pelf,
That was teh first time I saw the pink banana too :)

That is the info i gather from internet and more over the fruit is very hard.

Chen said...

ECL,
Red banana? o.O
It's time to check your eyesight liao.. Kkkkkkk :P

Selba,
Hehehe.. The fruit looks nice but it has no nice aroma like the edible yellow banana. And the fruit is pretty hard. Even the birds and the other animals are not interested with those pink banana :)

Trinity,
Kekekke.. I don't think anyone will bite the banana since it's hard and not edible.

Thanks, i will visit your post soon :)

everydayhealy,
The pink banana is not edible, so despite it's nice and pinkish appearance, it's not sweet :)

it's not edible, hence we dunno how it tasted like :)
