Photo of the week July 25th, 2012

Bananas are one of the most popular fruits in the world.  Ghana produces some fantastic organic bananas - but when you fly over them they look like 'blue plastic bag trees'.  Here we see each fresh bunch of bananas covered with a blue plastic bag to protect the fruit as it grows to become ready to harvest.  The banana industry in Ghana has grown over the years and accounts for many jobs, especially around the lower reaches of the Volta Basin.  Market potential for far more fruit and vegetables for export exists, and provided the land and labour solutions are there, the desire to make it happen exists also.  Photo courtesy of WAASPS Ltd
