Our producer

Our farmer is a banana producer from Madeira. This type of banana is a subspecies originated and grown extensively on the island of Madeira, traditionally smaller than the South American banana but accentuated on the palate.

You can embark on an interesting tour that takes you closer to a banana tree. In the farm, you spend part of your glorious time learning how banana trees are planted and how to identify various varieties and species of banana grown on slopes of Madeira Island.

After the farm experience, see and learn how different varieties of banana are used by local people. This session takes you to learn everything about the banana of Madeira.
