At Jiwa Damai we have about 150 banana plants, spread all throughout the permaculture garden.

The bananas are harvested green and then covered in a box to ripen. We do have about 8 different kinds of bananas in our garden. Their taste is so incredibly aromatic and sweet.

They ripen throughout the whole year and can be harvested at different times.

We also dry the banans in our food drying oven – these dried bananas are very delicious as well.

Here we see some ripe Jackfruit.
Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world, reaching 80 pounds (36 kg) in weight and up to 36 inches (90 cm) long and 20 inches (50 cm) in diameter.
The flesh of the jackfruit is starchy, fibrous and is a source of dietary fiber. The flavour is similar to a tart banana.
