Guam - If you've got a green thumb or just want to start planting your own produce, you can get started today.

Thanks to a partnership between the Department of Agriculture and the University of Guam, banana plants are now on sale for you at home.

The partnership is a collaborative effort to offer disease-free planting stock to local farmers and backyard gardeners.

Several varieties of bananas are available with prices ranging from $3-$7, depending on the size of the plant.

The best time to visit the agriculture nurseries to purchase your banana plants are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
