Bananas Growing in Macedonia
Tuesday, 16 August 2011

The first Macedonian bananas grew ripe on the plantation of Dimce Mladenovski from Crniliste. Bananas found their way to Macedonian soil by accident. A friend of Mladenovski gave him a seedling as a gift a few years ago.

At first, he was very sceptical about planting bananas because Macedonian winters can be very cold.


It takes three years until the first harvest and seedlings need a lot of attention, especially during the winter, Mladenovski explains. He thinks that bananas can grow in Macedonia now because of the climate change.
