Protecting banana fruits

Posted by marion_grower 7 (My Page) on

For the first time I have bananas on my plant, and am wondering if there is an effective way in which to protect them from racoons, etc. We live out in the woods of SW MS. I planted this banana for the foliage several years ago, it dies back each winter, and the conditions here are not ideal for production of fruit. I was surprised that it bloomed last year, and now we actually have bananas, and, as much as we enjoy feeding the wildlife, it would be fun to enjoy them ourselves!

RE: Protecting banana fruits

Unless you can wrap the banana plant in a deer netting, I don't know what else can keep them out. They are way too smart. Good luck and congrats on the fruits. I also have fruit for the first time on my musa bordelon on all three plants throught my yard. Red
