    I've heard that there are some issues with them.  In addition to coffee beans.

    •  Bananas will probably survive, but what varietal? (0+ / 0-)

      Gros Michel is long gone from fungal rot, Cavendish is proving to be vulnerable to it too, so they're intensively breeding and testing new varieties. They probably won't taste the same (an apple-ish taste is commonly reported) - but the Cavendish tasted different from Gros Michel too.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
