Bananas

Bananas are eaten raw. Plantains are used in cooking. Bananas are grown in 107 countries. The cavendish cultivar is the most common banana type sold. Panama disease attacks the roots of the banana plant and can wipeout plantations. Airtight rooms filled with ethylene gas are used to ripen bananas. Bananas are an excellent source of vitamin B6, manganese and potassium.
