Myfoodstory,food from my tribe now am here with my story.You also ask for my
detail like ID,which ID should i gave you please let me know so i can attach
to you.I have also attach some picture concerning what i have explain in food
My name is Helen Mahoo am a girl from Tanzania ,I was born in Kilimanjaro
region.Kilimanjaro is one of the regions in Tanzania good in producing coffee
and banana .
I have interested to share something in Myfoodstory I will explain about
banana our tribe food from my chagga tribe Kilimanjaro.
Banana has two varieties, the fruit or sweet banana and plantain, The fruit
banana eaten raw out of hand when it turns yellow and develop a succulent
sweetness with a soft, smooth and yet firm pulp.
The plantain ,a cooking banana is also referred to as the meal. Plantains
have lower water content, making them drier and starchier than fruit
Banana must be propagated from large rootstock that are carefully
transplantation suitable climate, hot tropics, with average temperature .The
soil must excellent drainage or the rootstocks will rot they called suckers
from rootstocks they produce new plants. In about six up to nine month the
plant reach their mature height. From the stems there are about 12 inches
flower shoots begin to produce bananas.
Bananas are mature about three months from the time of flowering, with
each bunch producing about 15 to 20 hands or rows. Each hands has about 20
bananas. It good that bananas are harvested in the green state at just the
right harvested two early the would develop a floury pulp instead of process
as soon as they are harvested.
After all this now banana are now ready go to the market or to use it,
example of our farm which we have, costumers always come to collect direct
from the farm.
What do we get from eating bananas, from bananas we get vitamins and
minerals, like vitamins A,B,C. Bananas also help in some of diseases in our
body like heartburn, Constipation, to my side I think is the best food to use
its not cost much and its not difficult to plant it, let practice is. You can
also have a look on this picture our bananas farm. Good Health for Good
In our farm we also have different kind of vegetables which doesnt take
long time to mature, We prepare a farm we apply manure on it and left it for
two days while apply water everyday on it, after two day we now put
vegetables seed on the place which we have prepared.
Most of the vegetables which we plants take 21days to 29days ready for
selling, we use irrigation system. We have permanent customers who are coming
to purchases at home and brought it to the market .As you can see a picture of
one of the farm with vegetables.
