Battling to save the world's bananas

Graham Watson

1st February 2018

The story of the banana is a remarkable one: the whole commercial global banana crop can be traced back to a particular Cavendish banana tree that originate at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, and this makes it susceptible to disease.

The disease that is affecting the sector, Panama disease, is particularly virulent, is reducing the supply of bananas - and this has obvious implications for the price of bananas which for many years has been a staple source of affordable nourishment.
