First set of Bananas harvested

Good morning! Hope your family, pets, plants, and you are all well.

Remember the banana plants I was talking about, about their first flowers, and about the transition of flowers to first fruits? Well, the first set of fruits have ripened; weighed 9 kgs and each layer had 10-12 fruits. No chemicals used; grown organically. One issue that we faced was aphids on the fruits; luckily, the pests hadn't damaged the fruits in any way. We offered the fruits to god, distributed to family, friends, and neighbors, and then ate a few fruits ourselves. The fruits taste like sweet butter; melts in the mouth!

Waiting for the next set of fruits to ripen.


Regards,
Asha

    1. Thanks, Arun. Did I mention that the banana taste like sweet butter? The banana variety is called Rasa BaLe (Rasthali).

Hi friends,

Thanks for visiting the blog site. Please leave a message to share experiments at your garden or to send me a feedback about my experiments. Even a simple "Hello" would make my day!
