We all love to eat healthy food that tastes just like our favorite dish. We have wrinkled our nose at something that is impossibly healthy, but not tasty. These Blue Java Banana will help you to forget all those bad memories. Even though they are healthy and delicious, it’s a bit rare. It has roughly the health benefits of Broccoli and tastes like vanilla ice cream.

They primarily grew in South Asia. They can survive some of the harshest environments. They require 40 Fahrenheit for optimum growth. But they can even grow at temperatures below freezing point. They turn thick and blue upon ripening. They are a substitute to most bananas and fruits we eat.

This is the way to grow it in a place which isn’t South Asia.

There should be enough sunlight & rain where you are planning to grow them. If you are in the United States, they are grown in USDA’s zones, from 9b to 11.

There should have available space where they can grow without restraint as the plantations grow up to 20 feet. You also need to put a sufficient amount of watering daily. The roots should also go deep into the soil to prevent it from rotting.

Use NPK fertilizer in a ratio of 3:1:6 and apply it once a month. You need to pour water while applying the fertilizer in order for the fertilizer to be soaked in deep. You also need to increase the amount of fertilizer along with the level of growth of your plant. First you need to put one cup of water and then keep increasing the amount.

Provide them with ample sunlight and get rid of the shoots that would suck in the nutrients for the fruit as they grow. It takes 9 months for the plant to grow in its entirety. So, be patience and work for it.

Blue Java Banana is extremely useful as it is high in potassium and has a multitude of minerals in it that makes it a very nutrient filled dish. This fruit is good for weight loss and would actually work well with low-fat ice-cream.

Their leaves are useful. They can be used in place of aluminum foils as they can withstand polarized temperatures. You also can simply use it for boiling, heating, frying, roasting, or freezing. The leaves will withstand anything you throw at it.

The banana’s nutrient composition is 0.3g of fat, 22.8g of carbs and 89 calories for every 100 gms. This fruit is healthier and lighter than other bananas.

The important this is that they are extremely delicious. You can use it for smoothies, desserts, etc.
