South Korea: Bananas successfully grown in a greenhouse

Bananas, a sub-tropical fruit, are now being grown in the central city of Jecheon, North Chungcheong Province, famous for its cold winter weather.

Some 50 banana trees cultivated in a greenhouse operated by the Jecheon Agricultural Technology Center have all borne fruit.

The center harvested four bunches of bananas last year, all of which were too small to be sold in the commercial market.

Three years ago, the center planted three kinds of banana trees across 330 square meters of land inside the greenhouse to provide a new source of income for local farmers.
