History

Bananas are the most popular fruit in North America. Over the years, the Glos Michel has disappeared from the market place and given way to the Cavendish variety. The Cavendish is less susceptible to disease and insects and less vulnerable to wind. However, this thin skinned banana is also prone to bruising.
