Bananas are thought to have been first domesticated in Papua New Guinea.  We have about 17 trees in our yard; they will only bear fruit once, then die.  We have banana muffins, cake, smoothies, plain, frozen…


Our yard man owes us money and in addition to paying us back in kina (the local currency) he’s been paying us back in banana bunches and by planting small banana trees in the yard.  He walks two hours to get here for his day’s work so it’s no small feat to get here with a huge banana bunch on his shoulder.
