|Fruit Salad Tree Monstera|
Do you eat your food too fast? The Monstera nicknamed "Fruit Salad Tree" can help you slow down. It can take 2 weeks just to eat one. It has flavours like pineapple and banana but unlike a banana where the entire banana ripens at once. The Monstera will only ripen about 10% of the fruit at a time. You eat 10% (the ripe bits falling off the stem) wrap it back up in newspaper and wait a few more days for your next delicious chance. Meanwhile your whole house will smell beautiful as it ripens. Lots of us have some places in our backyards that don't get full sun and a Monstera will thrive in partial shade. It grows in a wide range of climates one person saying "Who said it was tropical? I live in Hobart and have one outside the front door"
