Introduction: The banana tree is a very common tree in our country. It grows in some other countries in Asia and Latin America also.
Description: The banana tree is not really a tree. Its trunk is made of many barks. Its body has no wood. The barks are one upon another and thus they make the body. The barks are soil like a sponge. The tree has no branches. It has big and broad leaves at the top. The tree is light green. It looks pretty.
How grown: The tree does not grow from seeds. Shoots come out from old banana trees. These shoots are taken out from the mother tree. Holes are made into the ground some six or seven cubits apart. Then’ the young shoots are placed in these holes. The foot of the plant is covered with loose earth. The tree grows quickly but it does not grow in water.
Its fruit: The tree gives fruit only once and then it dies. At the very top of the plant their conies out a cluster with some fifty or more fruits on it. In shape and size, they look like tiny fingers. Day by day they grow bigger and thicker. When one or two of the fruits look yellow, the bunch is cut off and kept in the house. After sonic days many of the fruits ripen and become soft. Then they are fit for eating. Ripe bananas have a nice smell. They are tasteful and nutritious.
Uses: The banana tree itself is of no great use to us. Boys make a raft with it. Its dry leaves may also be used as fuel. But it does us the greatest good with its fruits.
Conclusion: Bananas are much in demand. So, the cultivation of banana trees can bring us money.
