Lots Of Banana Suckers!

Jun 18 2013

How many suckers should I keep per banana plant??

In the first round I separated all but one so it was the main plant and one pup and I replanted the others at different spots to start new corms.

Since the rainy season started a few weeks ago, new suckers are popping up like crazy!
The one in the picture has 4 new ones (red circles), number 1 being the main plant and #2 the first-round sucker.
I'm thinking about keeping one more pup and move the other 3.
I'm hoping that by keeping no more than 3 plants/corm they'll fruit faster.

What say you?
