The Thursday Quote

“Most of us have only ever eaten one kind of banana, the Cavendish, which is what our supermarkets carry, but there are in fact hundreds of varieties, including the so-called ‘beer’ bananas of Uganda and Rwanda.
“Farmers prefer to grow beer bananas (as opposed to cooking bananas, also known as plantains), because they can process the food into a highly profitable beer that, while short-lived, does not perish as quickly as the bananas do themselves.
“Transformed into beer, the bananas are easier to get to market.”
