I. Introduction to Karpoora Valli Banana

Karpoora Valli is a unique variety of banana (Musa spp.) that is grown for its fragrant leaves and delicious fruits. The name "Karpoora Valli" originates from the Tamil language, which translates to "camphor-like plant." This variety is native to South India and is prized for its distinctive aroma and taste.

II. Plantation

  1. Location: Select a well-draining, sunny location to plant your Karpoora Valli banana tree.
  2. Soil: Loamy, fertile soil with a pH range of 5.5 to 6.5 is ideal for banana growth.
  3. Spacing: Plant banana trees at least 8-10 feet apart to allow for proper air circulation and growth.
  4. Planting Method: Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball of the sapling, and gently place the sapling in the hole. Fill the hole with soil, and water thoroughly.
