Bananas are one of our best sources of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function. Since the average banana contains a whopping 467 mg of potassium and only 1 mg of sodium, a banana a day may help to prevent high blood pressure. Bananas have long been recognized for their antacid effects that protect against stomach ulcers and ulcer damage. Could be World's Healthiest Food.

Banana plants can offer many benefits:

•They make great windbreaks or screens, •they can keep the sun of the hot western side of your house, •they utilize the water and nutrients in waste drains (think washing water or outdoor shower), •the leaves can be fed to horses, cows and other grazers, •the dried remains of the trunks can be used for weaving baskets and mats. ..... and they give you bananas. Lots of bananas!

Banana plants like:

•Rich, dark, fertile soils. •Lots of mulch and organic matter. LOTS. Just keep piling it on. •Lot of nitrogen and potassium. (Chicken manure!) •Steady warmth, not too hot and not too cold. (Bananas are sissies when it comes to temperatures...) •Steady moisture, in the ground and in the air. •The shelter of other bananas! That's the most overlooked aspect by home growers...

How do bananas grow?

A banana plant takes about 9 months to grow up and produce a bunch of bananas. Then the mother plant dies. But around the base of it are many suckers, little baby plants.

At the base of a banana plant, under the ground, is a big rhizome, called the corm.

The corm has growing points and they turn into new suckers. These suckers can be taken off and transplanted, and one or two can be left in position to replace the mother plant.

Planting bananas You can not grow edible bananas from seeds. Edible Banana plants don't produce seeds.

Maintaining your banana patch The most common cause of death for bananas is lack of water. Protect them and feed them and water them and all will be well. Other than that bananas don't need much maintenance.

You get bigger fruit if you remove all unwanted suckers, only keeping the best one (two for very healthy, vigorous plants).

A mature plantation is pretty much self mulching. Just throw all the leaves and old trunks etc. back under the plants. You can also grow other plants in the under story to produce more mulch. (I use cassava, sweet potato and crotolaria).

You just need to sprinkle on some fertilizer every now and then, to replace what you took out of the system when you took the bananas. Keep the fertilizer close to the trunk as bananas don't have a big root system.

Growing banana fruit You may see your first flower emerge after about six months, depending on the weather. Leave the leaves around it, especially the one protecting the top bend of the stalk from sunburn!

As the purple flower petals curl back and drop off they reveal a "hand" of bananas under each. Each banana is a "finger".

You may get anything between four to a dozen or more full hands. Then, under the next petal, you'll see a hand of teeny weeny excuses for bananas. Those are the male fingers.

The male fingers just dry and drop off. Only the stalk remains. If you let it grow it will eventually reach the ground.

I never cut the flower off while growing the bananas. The hummers (Ed: hummingbirds) love them too much. I have to keep my hummers happy.

Bananas are ready to be picked when they look well rounded with ribs, and the little flowers at the end are dry and rub off easily.

They will eventually ripen on the bunch, and those bananas taste the best. But once they start they ripen very quickly, faster than you can eat or use them. So you may as well cut the top hands off a bit earlier and ripen them on the kitchen bench.

You can also cut the whole bunch and hang it somewhere if you need to protect it from possums or birds or other thieves. But then all bananas will ripen at once! So be prepared.

You can preserve bananas for use in cooking and baking by peeling and freezing them. Or, to preserve them for eating, peel, split in half lengthwise and dry them. Banana plants can offer many benefits:

Great, so now you know what to do once you have bananas growing in your garden, but how do you start?

How to get started growing bananas. Bananas can handle extreme heat (if they have enough water), but they don't like it. They can handle cool weather for a short while, but they don't like that either.

You need very rich soil. If you don't have good soil to start with, make some. Incorporate lots and lots of compost and before you plant your bananas (wood ash for extra potassium doesn't hurt either), and then mulch them very thickly. And keep mulching and feeding them!
