Banana trees are often times used in landscapes and this is due to their large and attractive foliage. They are admired for their fruit. If someone has bananas in their garden, then they are likely growing them for their edible properties as well as their ornamental properties. It takes a lot of work to grow bananas and they are liable to get diseases and other things that prevent them from being enjoyed. One of the issues they face is cracked skin.
- Growing a banana tree is a great choice that needs to be considered. Cracked skin is a big problem for anyone growing the tree.
- Ripe bananas typically go from green to yellow on the exterior. But cracked skin can interfere with that process itself over time.
- Higher temperatures may be at the core of the cracked skin for bananas. They ripen bananas too quickly and cause the fruit to crack open.
“If you have gotten your bananas at the supermarket, the reason for splitting is probably due to how they were processed as they were being held and ripened.”
