Default Re: Grafting Bananas by the Insistent Banana Grower - Mauro

Surprisingly southern turkey has commercial banana production but the bananas grown are used mostly within turkey and are not exported. I heard the recent preference in Turkey was for the supermarket banana or Gran Nain and less favored is the locally grown variety. I had shipped some tissue cultured gran nain to a grower and they are doing fine in that climate. They finally reached maturity back 5-6 years ago and I heard the locals love them. Hopefully they will continue to use the divisions off of the mature gran nain plants and increase even further production with that variety. But see even in countries that produce bananas selection is often limited apparently as it is in Japan.
