  • History & Heritage

    The cultivation of the Sirumalai Hill Banana is a centuries-old practice in the deep woods of the Sirumalai hills, where the fruit is an essential component of the local environment. The unusual climatic circumstances at 1,600 feet above sea level add to the banana's distinctive flavour. This banana type is not only a staple meal for the indigenous people in the region, but it also has religious significance.
