You see them all the time.. in supermarket and greengrocers… the red wax tipped bananas.
You know they’re special.. the red wax tells you so. And if you’ve bothered to shell out the extra couple of dollars.. you know that they taste very different to your average banana.
So what’s so special about them? Well, the very clever and dedicated farmers at Pacific Coast Eco Bananas have devised a system where they employ the services of little critters and other organic means, to assist them in growing bananas ecologically, without the use of pesticides, fungicides etc etc. So essentially, the fruit is grown with the use of permaculture and organic methods. This results in better tasting fruit which is produced without damaging the natural ecosystems of the farming areas. It’s a win-win for everybody involved, particularly when we see areas enriched by farming, rather than stripped by them.
