Banana Joe Fantasy Painting

This is from a photo sent to me by a German tourist from the 80's.
His wife painted this fantasy version of Banana Joe's. I wish I had saved the name to attribute it to her but I think its kind of neat .

Pejibaye/Peach Palm Fruits

My friend Scot Osborn from Wainiha brought these in for a test evaluation. Saved some seeds for planting. I boil them in salted water, peel, slice and use for pupu. A mayo/salsa dipping sauce makes for a filling treat. I've had good thick soup from them as well.
