Banana Blossom - A Rarity?

What started as an innocent looking pseudostem a few meters away down an old trail called "Panghuyogan" became a wonder among the folks in Barangay Tugbongan, Banton, Romblon. And they almost went bananas trying to figure out a cluster of purple-maroon torpedo banana blossoms! They found eight banana blossoms after a bunch shed of its bracts to reveal a biological rarity which the barangay folks had never seen before. Third week of May, strong habagat winds felled its trunk. The beauty got buried in the corners of the mind.
