Why we need to make bread to keep our banana industry sustainable…

Our Climate in Carnarvon has strong sea breezes in summer, cooler temperatures in winter, low humidity and hot summer days, all the things bananas don’t like! We work hard to keep our bananas protected from the wind, heat, cold and keep the humidity in by growing them close together. This creates a perfect microclimate and helps us reduce our water use.

All this stress on our bananas is good news though, as they take much longer to grow and because of this end up much sweeter and creamier than the tropical Queensland bananas.

Unfortunately, this also means that as they grow, they sometimes get skin markings, with leaves rubbing on the growing bananas. These marks are just superficial, they don’t impact on the banana underneath, or change the taste, they just don’t look too pretty.

Alas in this day and age, everyone only wants pretty things, and no matter how sweet and tasty our bananas are, they are sadly, judged on their looks. Sometimes they just go back into the paddock as fertiliser, for no other crime that having a few markings. We decided to fight back. We don’t like wasting bananas that we have spent 18 months watering, fertilising and tending to and we know that lots of people who love our bananas feel the same way. We figured that if we make banana bread, you won’t even see the skin, and all you need to do is love the taste.

So try some today, and help us to make sure that everything we grow is eaten, because that’s what mother nature intended. It might be a stretch to say that eating our banana bread is saving the planet, but at least you are saving our bananas from turning into fertiliser, one loaf at a time…

Lunchbox Banana

The original lunchbox banana, famous for the sweet and creamy taste and small size. Always in the original lunchbox bag, the bag serves a dual purpose - to brand and identify so you know you are getting the true original lunchbox banana and to protect our bananas sensitive skins from marking. A family favourite with sweet and creamy spray free bananas. The original lunchbox banana is available in Western Australia in Coles, Farmer Jacks, selected IGA's and independent stores. If your local store doesn't carry these bananas tell them to contact us and we can supply!

Smoothies

Grown on the outside of the bunch our smoothies bananas are also sweet, creamy and spray free. The light markings are caused by the banana leaves tickling the bananas as they grow. The small markings on the outside are only skin deep and inside you will find the perfect banana, ready for eating or smoothies and cakes. Smoothies are available from Coles supermarkets in Western Australia.

Sweeties

Sweeter Bananas are generally being smaller in size through the winter months and a lot of bananas are staying small until they are ready to be picked. This fruit has previously gone into waste but demand of smaller fruit and packages has changed this trend and we have created a new product of Sweeter Bananas in shape of a 500 gram bag with sweet delicious bananas to the Perth supermarkets. It is very limited supply and only available through winter.
