Observe a banana “in the making” – that’s just one of the fascinating journeys you can take in the Greenhouses of Jardin des Plantes (Les Grandes Serres du Jardin des Plantes). If you’re lucky enough, you’ll see the 10m banana trees showing off their lovely rosy-coloured banana blossom. You can also feel the bark of the coffee tree or hear the inspiring story of the cacao bean. Be all ears for the Mexican cocoa chicken recipe!
