17 Hands In One Bunch! What A Banana!

This banana variety from Honduras, FHIA 18, produces a particularly big fruit bunch. This one at the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal, has 17 hands in the developing bunch, each hand having an average of 20 fingers.ย 

This plant in photo has developed a big pseudostem which enables it to carry a big bunch. The plant was planted as a sucker a little more than a year ago. It is one banana variety that is worth observing.ย 


It was developed by the Fundacion Hondureรฑo de Investigacion Agricola and introduced into the country by Bioversity International.
