Bananas are growing on the banana tree grown in Hapa Farms’ aquaponic system in Nu’uanu. The tree was planted from a small cutting in the gravel bed and fruit appeared in early July. Can’t wait to eat these bananas!

    Hey. I’m trying to grow a drawf banana tree in our aquaponic system. How did yours do? It looks great…really huge! Did you have to add extra nutrients to get it to produce? Whatever helpful will be appreciated thanks!

    The bananas are still growing and we’re just waiting for them to start to ripen. We’d be happy to help you with your tree, can you tell us a little more about your system? What type of system are you using?
