Sunday Post: Blossom

Banana flowers are also known as Banana Blossom, and used widely throughout Asia as a culinary ingredient. Our bananas have nearly finished flowering, and the bananas will ripen during winter.

The inner pale bracts are used for cooking, and the outer bracts may be used as a serving bowl for salads. Of course we just leave them all on the tree to ripen, since we enjoy our sugar bananas so much!
