Bananas grow in hundreds of species, but if you love them and eat regularly, ninety percent is a chance to enjoy the Cavendish variety.
Cavendish is the most widely used commercial variety of bananas. They are bred, imported and eat everywhere because they are large, resistant and bear good transport. But if you’ve ever traveled to Asia or in a better foreign shop they had the opportunity to buy other banana varieties, or maybe bananas that were harvested when they were really mature and did not see the fridge, you know Cavendish is not the most delicious banana close up. In addition, the last four years of Cavendish plantations have fevered fungal diseases that spread from South East Asia to Pakistan, Lebanon, Jordan, Oman, Mozambique, and Australian Queensland.
