Stansted goes Bananas

Ever wondered what exotic fruit can be grown in your own back garden? Well how about bananas?

One local resident from Forest Hall Park in Stansted, contacted the club to show off the Musa Basjoo banana plants they have been growing in their garden. Planted directly in the ground, the plants have grown to an impressive 5- 6ft tall, with the biggest one already growing a giant flower with around 16 tiny bananas growing this year!

It just shows you want is capable of growing in Stansted. We look forward to an update on the taste!
