Bananas from the Bernese Alps
The warm climate inside the Tropenhaus’s greenhouses and the fact that the fruit can ripen naturally leads to an incomparable taste. Banana, papaya, mango, carambola - or star fruit, dwarf banana, guava, physalis, lychee, durian, mangosteen, avocado, pineapple and kumquat are a few of the countless plants grown in the Tropenhaus. About two tons of fruit should be harvested each year with most of it making its way into the fresh, seasonal dishes prepared in the Tropenhaus restaurants.
A walk through the greenhouses with their flourishing flora reveals the often unfamiliar trees and plants on which the fruit sold in our supermarkets are grown. The sheer variety, lush colours and tropical climate along with the magnificent flowers and fruit are a delight to the senses.
