A difference of banana that offers a identifiable discrimination, "Nanjangud rasabale" has tickled the taste buds of group from far and heavy. Now lendable only at a few fruit shops in the port, this variety of herb has been wanted after by the selected. Its outgo is prohibitive when compared to different herb varieties.
