The banana is one of the most important fruits in the world – well-known and consumed globally. It grows on plants from the genus Musa which look like trees. However, scientifically speaking they are actually gigantic herbs, as their stems do not grow woody. Banana plants are of excellent suitability for Regenerative Agroforestry systems. They can be combined with other crops such as coffee, cocoa, or avocados and provide a valuable income and nutrition source for farmers.
