Banana species and cultivars grown?:
Land is "Tosca" ("tough" like the opera's heroine) and at 45-deg incline. Nothing for it but terraced farming. De-weeded, terraced, bananas that were bunched together were separated to different areas, used very little to NO fertilizer. Soil seems unusually fertile. Bunches have 175-200 bananas. Bananas are OK but not as long & pretty as I see in super-markets. Would appreciate names of non-cooking, edible cultivars that are long & pretty as well as tasty. Also looking to plant roses and other flowers useful for arrangements in PR.
