African Banana In Teresa Orchard & Nursery

 ZBS,  Myrna Magalong and Dorie S. Bernabe.

A NEW banana from Africa is now growing very well at the Teresa Orchard & Nursery in Teresa, Rizal. Kasirakwe is its varietal name.

The plant in photo was planted as a tissue-cultured seedling on March 31, 2012 and is now very robust (photo taken Oct. 12, 2012). The trunk or pseudostem is dark or close to black.

We have been told that the fruits resemble the shape of the Latundan but we have not tasted it yet. We are looking forward to tasting the fruits in a few more months.

Two suckers have already emerged and we will separate them as soon as they are more than two feet tall.

In photo are your blogger, Zac B. Sarian, Myrna Mabalong and Dorie S. Bernabe. The two ladies visited the nursery on October 12.
