  SJ09-2420.JPG - A grove of banana plants. A banana plant takes 9 months to mature. A plant produces one bunch of bananas. When the bunch is harvested, the plant is cut down. A new plant will grow from a sucker near the root of the old plant. Hence the saying, "On a banana plantation a new sucker is born every nine months." About every five years the old roots are dug up and a new plant started.
