2019 Coffs Harbour Show – Banana Exhibit

3

The Banana Exhibit at the 2019 Coffs Harbour Show was once again a great success, thanks to those who gave up time to man the stalls and the many growers who entered fruit.

The coveted Banana Cup was won by mother and son farming duo Monica and Jason Gentle, who also took home first place for their Cavendish fruit in the Marketable and Carton of Hands categories.

Lady Fingers were also well represented, with Clayton Hoy sweeping the field with his high-quality fruit. BGA President Wally Gately said Ducasse was extremely popular with show-goers stopping by for a taste test, with many returning for more after sampling the variety in previous years.

“Even with the Lady Fingers there, it was Ducasse that got the most community reaction,” he said.
