    FrutPlanet is a leading exporter of fresh fruits, vegetables, and spices. We work with local growers to bring you the freshest, most vibrant banana fruits in the market. Our products are sustainably grown and always delivered fresh!

    Skin Colour: Unripe banana fruits are solid green and waxy when freshly harvested and have a variety of shades in between as they ripen. On the other hand, ripe banana fruits’ skin colours vary depending on the variety. They can be yellow, green, purple, or red. Overripe banana fruits will turn black or have brown spots on their skin. At FrutPlanet, our banana fruits are harvested 2-3 weeks earlier before they are fully ripe to ensure you get fresh-ready banana fruits unaffected by any post-harvest blemishes.

    Fruit Sizes and Shapes: Fresh banana fruits are almost always curved-shaped and can range from 2 ½inches to 12 inches long and ¾ – 2.5 inches wide. One example is the Cavendish banana fruits, which have a bunch of elongated, cylindrical, and slightly curved, with slightly pointed end fruits. Immature banana fruits have a square or sharp angular shape in cross-section, which changes to a more rounded shape as it ripens. FrutPlanet ensures its employees in the plantations harvest all banana fruits by hand using a two-team person to preserve their natural shape and ensure they are cut off as a bunch.

    Varieties: There are over 1000 varieties of banana fruits, each with unique characteristics and flavour profiles. Some popular varieties at FrutPlanet include the Cavendish banana fruits, Gross Michel, Apple banana fruits, gold finger, and lady finger banana fruits. FrutPlanet exporters work with a network of growers to offer our customers their exact specifications.

        Bananas are popular fruits worldwide for their sweetness and versatility. Also, they’re packed with nutrients like potassium, vitamin C, fibre, and antioxidants. Some of their health benefits: 

        Regulate Blood Pressure Levels: banana fruits are potassium-rich fruit. A medium-sized banana fruit provides 300 – 400 mg of potassium, meeting about 10% of the recommended intake. Potassium maintains healthy blood pressure by reducing stress on the cardiovascular system. Also, banana fruits are low in sodium and are a good source of vitamin C, which keeps blood vessels flexible and strong.

        Reduce Blood Sugar Levels: Bananas are low-sugar fruits containing resistant starch, a carbohydrate type that can slow food glucose absorption. They achieve this by breaking down slowly into glucose, inhibiting an abrupt release of energy like other sugars. This can be helpful for people with diabetes or heart disease who need to manage their blood glucose levels regularly.

        Aid In Digestion: banana fruits are high in dietary fibre, which helps to improve digestion. An average-sized ripe banana fruit provides about 3 grams of fibre, equating to about 10% of your daily requirements. Banana fruits are also an excellent source of prebiotics, food that helps fuel the good bacteria in your gut. Ripe banana fruits can also help improve bowel health and reduce bloating by supplying your digestive system with these essential nutrients. Some studies found that pectin, a type of fibre found in ripe and unripe banana fruits, may also help lower the risks of colon cancer.

        Can Aid In Weight Loss: While maintaining their sweetness, fresh banana fruits have been linked with weight loss since they contain few calories. The average banana fruit has about 100 calories, of which only a few are from sugar. Additionally, the resistant starch in banana fruits makes you fuller and helps reduce appetite.

        May Support Kidney Health: When it comes to kidney health, banana fruits may be a good choice. Potassium found in banana fruits is essential for maintaining fluid balance in the body and slowing kidney disease progression. Additionally, they contain vitamin C, which supports healthy blood vessel function and helps prevent kidney damage. However, individuals with late-stage kidney disease should talk to their healthcare provider before increasing their potassium intake.

        Contain Antioxidant Properties: Fresh banana fruits are a good source of antioxidants, including flavonoids and amines. These antioxidants play an important role in protecting the body from oxidative damage by free radicals, which can cause health problems like heart disease and degenerative diseases. Additionally, antioxidants help scavenge damaging chemicals that may have been produced due to physical or environmental exposure.

        At FrutPlanet, we task ourselves with ensuring that all of our banana fruits are of the highest quality possible. This starts with post-harvesting procedures, which entail cutting off any attached banana fruit hands from the stalk. 

        Once removed, we remove any damaged or stained fingers (with latex or waxy spots) before cleaning them because they may turn black during shipment.

        We also grade and pack the banana fruits, ensuring that the methods meet international standards. 

        The grading system we follow includes sorting the banana fruits into three fruit grades, depending on their sizes. These fruit grades include:

        • Extra Large: comprises banana fruits that are 200 mm long and have a minimum of 110 mm circumference
        • Large: the large grade ranges from 177 to 200 mm in length and has a minimum circumference of 108
        • Medium: the medium grade consists of 140 to 177-mm-long banana fruits with a minimum circumference of 101 mm.

        When you order fresh banana fruits online at FrutPlanet, we will avail them packed as “hands,” “singles,” or “clusters,” depending on your specific preferences and requirements.

        We always follow international standards by packing banana fruits in fiberboard cartons with soft plastic liners. To ensure that the banana fruit reaches your destination in an excellent unripened condition, we place plastic slip sheets between whole hands and absorbent paper at the bottom of the carton

        To compensate for any weight loss during shipment and maintain a net weight of 13 kg, FrutPlanet goes the extra mile to pack the cartons to a weight of 13.5 kg. 

        Lastly, we label the cartons with the specific product, grade size, the grower’s name, and address using non-toxic ink.

        Quality Assurance: Each shipment of banana fruits from FrutPlanet is carefully inspected before exportation to ensure that the banana fruits are of the highest quality. Furthermore, all banana fruit shipments undergo maximum quality control before leaving our facility to guarantee consistent quality across all batches.

        We Offer Competitive Prices: We believe quality should not come at a premium, which is why we offer some competitive prices on banana fruit exports.

          Apple farming in Kenya is mainly practised in highland areas. The major apple-growing areas include Trans Nzoia, Uasin Gishu, Nandi, Kiambu, Nyeri, and Kericho.

        • Fresh French Beans Sold By: FrutPlanet

          FrutPlanet is a leading global exporter of fruits, vegetables, and spices. Want to export French beans? Request a quote, and our customer service team will engage you. 

          Pods. There are three categories of pods; Extra fine pods, fine pods, and bobby beans. Extra fine pods are tender, puffy, and seedless. They have no strings, and their diameter is less than 6mm and a length of 10cm. On the other hand, fine pods have small seeds, soft strings, and tender, puffy skin. The pods are longer than extra fine pods by about 3mm. Bobby beans are generally bigger and large. At FrutPlanet, we only source either fine or extra pods for our export customers.

          Shape: French beans are either straight or curvy with pointed ends. The length of French beans ranges between 6 and 12 cm. The pod’s skin should be smooth, and the ends should be tapered and pointed. Deformity and curling of French beans are signs of irregular watering. At FrutPlanet, we handpick and package all the beans and ensure we get rid of deformed beans.

          Colour: French beans are usually green, although a yellow variety exists. The yellow French beans are Haricot Jaune, a common vegetable in French cuisines. Green French beans can turn yellow due to a lack of water, and as a result, they lack nutrients. FrutPlanet has specialised professionals who check the beans before packaging.

          Smell: The French beans’ smell isn’t very noticeable. However, sensitive people realise that it has a faint grassy vegetal smell. On the other hand, if they’re ill-odored, whether green or mouldy, dispose them. The French beans can be green, yet they have undergone bacterial growth internally, which leads to a bad smell. Our team individually examines each bean when packaging to ensure that our customers only get quality produce.
