The farm cycle of the plantain Farm is 11 months. Presently the plantain farm is 6 months old! Hurray! This means we have 5 months until harvest.

Presently the plantain trees are between 3-10 metres with a conical false “trunk” formed by the leaf sheaths of its spirally arranged leaves, which are 1.5 to 3m long and about 0.5 m wide. It is at the early development stage.  Last week, weeding was done to remove the unwanted plants from the plantain farm.
