    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.

        We Guarantee Timely Delivery: We understand that timely delivery is essential for our customers, which is why we ensure to deliver of all shipments within the expected timeframe.

        • Fresh Broccoli Sold By: FrutPlanet

          FrutPlanet is a leading exporter and supplier of fresh broccoli and other fruits and vegetables. You can request a quote and let us engage you in your order.

          Colour: The best fresh broccoli for export should be green before the flower patch. The broccoli florets have a size of a matchstick and open up to small yellow flowers. Apart from green broccoli, there is also purple broccoli. At FrutPlanet, we source your preferred variety of broccoli right before it flowers.

          Stems and Stalks: Fresh broccoli stems and stalks are edible and delicious. However, they’re only perfect when firm. If they over-mature, they become woody and may be terrible. FrutPlanet handpicks all the fresh broccoli to feel the texture of each product. We have a team of experts who scrutinise the harvest and eliminate produce whose stems and stalks aren’t edible.

          Head Size: The size of fresh broccoli varies depending on the number of broccoli florets on the head. The size enlarges as the flowering stage nears. The average diameter of a fresh broccoli head is 4 to 6 inches when the broccoli is mature and ready for flowering. When you request a quote from FrutPlanet exporters, we source your specifications on sizes. We can get them all, whether you want large or medium-sized fresh broccoli!

          Flowering: Fresh broccoli with yellow flowers is often past the edible stage. Flowers signify that the flowers have opened up, and the stalk could be woody. Additionally, yellowing is a sign of older broccoli, although sometimes it could be natural. At FrutPlanet, we individually evaluate every product and eliminate broccoli florets before exporting.
