It grows what are called “Apple Bananas” which I had never heard of but have eaten plenty of times.
Did you know bananas grew in a spiral like this? I didn’t! So cool!
Looks are deceiving! This little bunch fed my boys two and a half times! Including Tias, that is about 85 bananas! Isn’t that amazing? You’d never know it from looking at it.
So fun to eat something cut right from the tree.
The guards had cut it about two weeks ago and stored it out of reach of the birds who you can see had already done some damage at the bottom.
Once they were ripe, the guards gave it to me for the boys.
