 Can This Fruit Be Saved? - Popular Science
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.
It also turns out that the 100 billion Cavendish bananas consumed annually worldwide are perfect from a genetic standpoint, every single one a duplicate of every other.
“A Banana,” says Juan Fernando Aguilar, “is not just a banana.” The bearded botanist and I are traipsing through one of the world’s most unusual banana plantations, moving down row after row of towering plants and ducking into the shade of broad leaves in an attempt to avoid the Central American midday heat.

I mean sure, you occasionally spot a zana banana, or another miniature, or plantains—which we'll get into later—but by and large, this is the American banana, the Cavendish, or a Cavendish derivative.
You know, bananas are 99 percent fat-free, high in fiber, vitamin C and vitamin B6, and it is loaded with potassium which is essential for regulating blood pressure and keeping your muscles strong and healthy.
These bananas are already pretty tender, so just scoop up with one fork and kind of flip it over onto the other fork and lay it down gently.

Banana and plantain cultivars most often grown in Florida are the 'Dwarf Cavendish', 'Apple', and 'Orinoco' bananas and the 'Macho' plantain.
Banana bunches are harvested with a curved knife when the fruits are fully developed, that is, 75% mature, the angles are becoming less prominent and the fruits on the upper hands are changing to light green; and the flower remnants (styles) are easily rubbed off the tips.
Banana bunches were formerly padded with leaf trash which absorbed much of the sap and latex from the hervesting operation and the sites of broken off styles, each of which can leak at least 6 drops, especially if bunches are cut early in the morning.

 FAO : Bananas not on verge of extinction, says FAO
The Cavendish's predecessor, the Gros Michel, suffered the same fate at the hands of fungal diseases, so this is a warning that we may need to find a replacement for the Cavendish banana in the future, FAO said.
FAO pointed out that small-scale farmers around the world grow a wide range of bananas that are not threatened by the disease currently attacking bananas sold mostly in Europe and North America.
Since more than 50 percent of the banana germplasm (land races) are sterile, biotechnology and mutation breeding are important tools that can improve banana varieties without the threat of genetic drift, said FAO.

Today, the banana genome is almost fully decoded--and we may be able to give the Cavendish what it needs to fight off Panama disease.
So even if Panama disease drives the Cavendish to extinction, some new banana may take its place.
Despite its name, Panama disease has not yet hit Latin America, the place from which we import most of our bananas.

Originally, Panama disease could knock out Cavendish bananas at the chilly fringes of their range but not in the tropical heart of banana territory.
If the disease sweeps through other big banana areas, such as top export producers Ecuador, Costa Rica, and Colombia, the Cavendish reign on supermarket shelves could be ending.
Now a new fungal strain, called race 4 of Panama disease, has struck in Southeast Asia, and this one can kill Cavendish bananas in the tropics.

THE threat of banana facing extinction within the next decade looms large due to the global epidemic of two fungal diseases — Black Sigatoka and Panama disease — that are rampaging through Central America, Africa and Asia.

 Bananas; an endangered fruit
Panama disease is making a comeback in a new form which has attacked the Cavendish.
London - Fungal disease could finish off the banana within 10 years, with dire consequences for half a billion people in Africa and Asia for whom it is a staple, according to a French research scientist writing in the New Scientist journal Thursday.
Almost all existing edible varieties are susceptible to the two fungal diseases, and a hybrid produced by laboriously searching for genetic accidents among thousands of sterile edible fruit turned out to taste more like an apple than a banana.

But an article in the August 2005 edition of Popular Science magazine suggests a fungal disease called Panama Disease Race 4 could threaten the existence of the Cavendish, the most widespread variety of banana sold in markets around the world.
Panama Disease Race 4, has been found in Southeast Asia, Australia and Indonesia, and some experts believe it could be only a matter of years before that fungus spreads to Latin America, the United States' main source of its favorite bananas.
In a statement, IBA officials said it is not certain that Panama Disease Race 4 will infect the banana crops in Latin America.
