To improve the quality of banana, wrapping of fruit bunches while they are ripening on the plant is highly recommended. MARDI's research findings suggest that skin injuries to Cavendish banana could be greatly reduced by as much as 90% by wrapping the fruit bunch. Wrapping produces banana high in quality and free from insect bites, fungi and bacteria, as well as physical injuries such as abrasions, blemishes and cuts.
