We've had a 'banana drought' for some months now but suddenly new bunches are appearing everywhere. We have little plots of banana plants all over the place - guess you could say they are organic as they have never been fertilised or sprayed. They are called Ducasse and really are the nicest bananas we've ever tasted - sort of a cross between a sugar banana and a ladyfinger, chunky and sweet. They make great jam and don't go brown when cut.
The bunch, top left, has recently emerged from the 'bell' - lower right is a large purple bell which will soon open to reveal it's budding fruit. The bell itself can be eaten in salads.
