Wonders of the Banana?
Hello everyone, I've just begun the Environmental Horticulture program at City College of San Francisco. Our first class project is a presentation about some kind of plant or group of plants that is important to human society. I have chosen BANANAS!!! And what better place to go for information about bananas than here? I will be doing plenty of research elsewhere, but thought I'd ask you banana growers for your imput, if you would. I plan to outline the habitats and growth patterns of banana plants, personal and commercial cultivation for food purposes, and the different ways in which the banana plant is used aside from food. I am particularly interested in banana plant parts as building material.
I should be able to find all the basic information through research, but I'd be happy to hear from you about any special or particularly interesting things about bananas, plantains, or anything else in the family. Growth habits, food uses, and material uses. I have only started looking today, and don't know much at all, so I hope you'll tell me some cool things and I can't wait to see what they'll be. THANK YOU!!!!
