Banana Trees
Q.

bananas on the tree ripening and filling out

Zone papatoetoe new zealand | Anonymous added on March 27, 2019 | Answered

our bunches of bananas are small in size , yet are starting to show black streaks on them! Each bunch has several hands , four to five on them. Can you tell me what is happening ? The last bunch we had last year ripened from top to bottom and didn't really taste very good.
