Fruit of FLHORBAN 916
Caption: Fruit of FLHORBAN 916, a dessert banana created by CIRAD's breeding programme to be resistant to the crop's main Mycosphaerella leaf spot diseases. It is also tolerant to two nematode species. The hybrid is characterized by a high number of small fruits and a short internval between harvests (4 months). Its short shelf life is better suited to short value chains.
