bananas are going extinct

I can’t believe I didn’t know this…bananas are going extinct. They have before (Gros Michel is no more), and will again (Cavendish is 100% seedless and hugely susceptible to a specific fungus now hell-bent on world domination).

We may be eating Goldfingers soon instead.

I guess it’s a good thing I love plantains!

  1. Yes – and see the article that I linked. It says the same thing. It also says that other banana variants are not going to taste the same.

    So my original post stands. The banana, as we know it, is going away. There will be plantains and other bananas, but not the Cavendish, just like there is no longer the Gros Michel (Big Mike).
