"What is Ms. Yoshino Kimura's amazing banana?"
Banana is the most widely consumed fruit in Japan and its imported volume is one million tons per year. Domestic banana cultivation has also become popular in recent years and some seniors can save their lives and find their own place by cultivating bananas. In addition, we discovered a "master of ripening" who makes bananas delicious. He can control ripening according to the quality of bananas, which change slightly depending on the origin and altitude.
