Pictures of a banana tree

Bananas grow in pretty much the whole of Cyprus but are grown primarily on banana plantations in the Paphos region towards Laci and the Güzelyurt area. They stretch along the coast up to the mountains. All products are supplied to the domestic market and have good demand. It has been found that the young banana leaves can help to heal burns and wounds.

Cypriot bananas are environmentally friendly and are not subjected to the treatment of chemicals for disinfection and preservation. Cypriots respect their manufacturers – all products grown in Cyprus are selling very well.
