There is hardly anyone who does not sometimes feel that ‘…a banana would have been enough at that time’. This is a banana case that justifies this. Bananas are the biggest bananas we have ever seen. But a video featuring an even bigger banana has now gone viral on Twitter. 300 bananas per season. Each fruit is about three times the length (about 7 inches) and size of a normal banana. The weight of a bunch of banana is about 60 kg. Isn’t that a banana? This is it, Musa Ingens.
Ananth Rupanagudi, a railway bureaucrat in Chennai, shared the rare banana on Twitter. The video is dubbed in Malayalam. This banana is native to Papua New Guinea, an Indonesian island located directly above Australia. A banana weighs about 3 kg. It means that one fruit is enough to satisfy the hunger of everyone in a family. But there is a problem. It takes five years to grow a banana that can reach a height of one konnam. Therefore, this banana is not widely cultivated.
