Banana plant in the Philippines

 

banana plant in the Philippines

What almost seems the weeds of the Philippines banana plants pretty much can take care of themselves once they are established and it doesn’t take much to do it. The biggest problem I face is identifying the different varities though as they vary on what you can do with them as some don’t taste so good unless boiled where as others can be eaten straight from the bunch.

These ones are growing outside at the moment with very little being done to them except the waste from the chickens is dumped near them to help act as a free fertilizer. As you can see though you do get a good bunch off them and several times a year if you look to the left you can see another bunch also developing.
