Default Banana solar bags for bunch protection

A great summer is coming to an end. Many of us are having fruit bunches that may have emerged late and might not fill in quick enough before the colder winter temperatures hit.
Myself I have been using solar bags for several years now to protect the bunches from cold and weather damage as well as damage caused by birds or rats with great success.
These bunch cover bags are like sleeves, open on both ends, so they can be pulled over a developing fruit bunch and tied to the peduncle.
They measure about 47" by 28", one side (silver) is the solar side which is supposed to face the sun, while the other side is green or blue plastic similar to a heavy duty trash bag.
This year I have been able to import an entire case of those bags to the US and I am willing to share with other members if interested.
The cost per bag is $5 plus the actual cost of USPS Priority Mail shipping. I use USPS small flat rate box $7.20 which will fit up to two bags.

If interested, please PM.
