That’s Bananas – Growing Here In The Garden District

Bananas growing on the 400 block of Girard Street.

 

An unusual sight for San Francisco, spotted growing here in the Garden District, around 3,500 miles north of its natural tropical habitat.  This photo was sent to us from a reader who caught these unripened bananas growing in the front yard of a home on the 400 black of Girard Street.  The house is on the west side of the street, protecting the plant from our notorious afternoon winds so that it can take full advantage of the warm sun  that lasts a little longer in this corner of the city.
