Papua New Guinea: The "king of kings" in the banana industry can weigh 2 kilograms

There is a small island country in Oceania called Papua New Guinea. This country is rich in a giant banana called Musa Ingens. This kind of banana is edible. A single banana weighs about 1.5 to 2 kilograms. The largest can even weigh 3 kilograms and the length can reach 30 cm.

Right: Musa Ingens compares with the adult arm

The banana tree variety of Musa Ingens is very rare all over the world. The tree is 25 meters high. Compared with the general banana or plantain tree, it is 5 times taller. The circumference of the trunk is wider than an adult can hug. The leaves are huge, which can be used as a temporary shelter for those who survive in the wild.

In addition to eating, Musa Ingens is also made into special dishes by the locals. The peel of the fruit can also be used as the raw material for making spices. The banana leaves are used by the locals to build houses, and the tree trunks are used to make wine and paper cloth. For Papua New Guineans, Musa Ingens is valuable from head to toe.

Therefore, Musa Ingens is also known as plant gold in the local area, and its fruit trees have also become a local attraction, attracting many tourists to come and visit.
