she said the name of this banana, pisang ayam.

I went over to Setiu, Terengganu for a program with the four wheel drive. The place was Agro Farm Resort. By 1.30pm we were already heading home.

I had been talking with Amin, the driver, about wanting to stop at any nursery  for papaya seedlings.There was a small but nice looking nursery close to Jertih,. It was a special nursery indeed because the nursery was right on the compound of the house. There was no papaya seedlings she said. Then I saw healthy looking banana plants behind her house. I just asked for a banana seedling, and she was more than happy to give three! She mentioned about the name of that banana, pisang ayam. Never heard before.

She said, those were for free. May God bless her business and soul.

the first two banana plants, in front of the balcony.
It is a bold move according to Kakdah to allow banana the vintage position
because most would grow banana somewhere at the back,
a well hidden part of the garden.

the third banana,

tanah merah, kelantan

  1. Is great to see your garden growing nicely and developing already.
    So lucky that you got those for free, is so nice that they are many generous people around.
    I am sure your bananas will do great, even on the front.

  3. Pisang ayam? Maybe as it grows, there would be a cocks' comb flower. It's nice that you got them for free. The universe knows that you have been giving some seeds away for free. That's what I heard.

  7. Strange sounding name of a banana tree...pisang ayam? Anyway, Kak Dah is right, you are blocking the view from the balcony with your Pisang Ayam...:)

  8. I wonder if the banana has the texture of chicken and thus, its name! Ha ha...

    That's a kind and generous lady that you met there, BangChik!

    Looking forward to seeing your garden flourishes like you former one in Putrajaya.

  9. fer: i hope the banana grow well especially those near the balcony.

    Theanne and Baron: It will be a long wait since banana take a year to produce fruits.

    One: Yes, i have been giving away seeds for free. Sometimes it reciprocates not necessarily from those you have given before.

    gardenwalkgardentalk.com: I hope they will survive to the end.

  10. Andrea: It should fun with the new place, but to work from scratch is hard work..

    Malar: Pisang ayam does look like pisang tanduk.

    p3chandan: It will block a little bit, but it compensates with cooling elements.

    JC: texture of chicken is a possibility, or chicken love those banana.
