Harvesting Bananas

Last weekend, I harvested some “Ambon” bananas in front of Zeze Zahra’s cabin house. In addition to the Ambon bananas, there were also 2 bunches of Morosebo (Cavendish Dwarf) bananas that were ripe enough, but I didn’t harvest them immediately because I was afraid that we wouldn’t be able to consume them all at once.

Usually, I only bring 2 bunches of bananas, one for my family at home and the other for my in-laws. The rest are usually shared with our neighbors or relatives.

As it turned out, I received a report today that the Morosebo bananas had ripened on the tree. I had no choice but to harvest them. Fortunately, the quality of the fruit was good. None of them were damaged or had spots, and the size of the fruit was plump and beautiful 😁 and sweet.

After a week of consuming bananas every day, I’ve become quite skilled at climbing trees like monkey 😁🤣

It was a pleasant surprise to have the Morosebo bananas ripen at the same time as the Ambon bananas. It meant that we had a good supply of fresh, ripe bananas for the next few days. The fruit was sweet and had a soft texture, making it perfect for a snack or dessert.

With so many bananas to consume, I started looking up new recipes to try. I’m interested in some ideas, such as banana fritters, banana bread, and banana smoothies. I also tried grilling some bananas and serving them with vanilla ice cream, and it was a hit with my family.

Aside from their delicious taste, bananas are also a great source of nutrition. They are rich in vitamins and minerals, including potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. They are also high in fiber, which is essential for good digestion and can help lower cholesterol levels.

It was a fruitful weekend, both in terms of the harvest and the enjoyment of fresh bananas. I am grateful for the opportunity to have access to such a delicious and nutritious fruit, and I look forward to enjoying more of it in the future.
