Banana Ripening Bags
Bunch covers protect the fruit from bird, wind and sun damage, improve its quality and increase the yield. These bags are half blue plastic and half silver to reflect heat and are used around the world with the silver colour facing the sun and the blue side closest to the "trunk". The bag comes as a tube which slides up the bunch and ties loosely only at the top and is left open at the bottom, as this allows air movement and prevents possible overheating in the bag. Cut off the flower bell 100 mm below the last hand to increase fruit size. 1200mm x 730mm.
