After 15,000 years of human cultivation, the banana is too perfect, lacking the genetic diversity that is key to species health.
On one side are traditional banana growers, like Aguilar, who raise experimental breeds in the fields, trying to create a replacement plant that looks and tastes so similar to the Cavendish that consumers won’t notice the difference.
