THEY may have to change the words of the novelty song ‘Yes! we have no bananas’ following this year’s sweltering summer.

Yvonne Wilson has a number of banana trees in the garden of her home at Eastwick Road, Taunton.

But they’ve never produced any fruit – until this year, when the mother tree came up with the goods.

Yvonne said: “The bananas aren’t very big but it’s very unusual for them to grow in this country and must be down to the hot weather we’ve been having.”
