10 thoughts on “Yes, we have bananas

    1. I like bananas well enough but prefer avocados (which despite farming them, the G.O. doesn’t eat) and mangoes. We were lucky enough to be able to go onto and into the G.O.’s Granny’s old property, and sampled a banana from there (future post) and it whet the G.O.’s appetite for local Coffs bananas.


    1. They certainly do 🙂 The Coffs Coast is famous for them… and even has the Big Banana tourist attraction but they also grow in Queensland. The G.O. being a Coffs banana grower once, far prefers the local offerings 🙂


    1. We’ve had very warm weather – great from a holiday point of view but need rain for tanks. Cooler & cloudy today so I unusually have internet access at TA.
      We ate a banana from the G.O.’s Granny’s old property… subject of a future post… which gave him the taste… Cunninghams has been there I estimate for more than 40 years, and is a bit of an icon, and more real, less trashy that the famous Big Banana 🙂


    1. I agree, fruit was seasonal and other than local orchard fruit, I never tasted ‘tropical’ fruit outside a tin (yuck) until in my 20’s… but the G.O. is right, Coffs bananas taste like proper bananas 🙂
