Description

The "Lady Finger" cultivar of Musa x paradisiaca is prized for its sweet, creamy fruits, making it an alluring choice for any garden or patio. This banana variety provides an impressive visual impact with its tropical green foliage and, when flowering about 10 months after planting, adds an exotic touch. However, the coolness of Makuru (winter) might postpone the flowering until the warmth of Djilba (early spring) sets in.

Whether situated in a pot or directly in the ground, "Lady Finger" enjoys a sunny position and consistent watering, especially during the hot Bunuru (summer) days. For those opting for in-ground planting, incorporating a soil conditioner can significantly improve poor, sandy terrains, ensuring optimal growth. As Djilba (early spring) approaches, a dose of high-potassium, slow-release fertiliser will greatly benefit fruit development. When the bananas exhibit ripeness and firmness, they can be harvested by carefully cutting the bunch above the fruit stem.
