"And obviously the big question we're asking today is our bananas going extinct? What kind of strange is that? If that happens, this will actually be the second time a top banana has gone extinct. Yes. Oh, you're right. Basically the banana that everyone fell in love with from the 18 seventies until the mid 19 hundreds. That's the one that started the banana craze. It was called the Gros Michel. Or for those of you who want English translation from the French. Big Mike. I never know that really big Mike was thought to be the perfect banana. And the flavor was completely different. From what we know. Speaking of I actually went to this pop of magazine show while ago have you gone like how we've been in for, like, 15 seconds, and you're already on a tangent here, But I actually have not been to one, but I know you said they're They're pretty great. Yeah, you should go. So for this. You don't know Papa magazine tours the country performing a live magazine curating like 12 or 13 different writers to speak in the night And they have this live orchestra that actually scores the stories and sometimes they include shadow puppets or video or these sensory experiences. I honestly tell everyone about Not them. That sound interesting. Yeah, but when I was at one in New York, they had a chef who headed out to types of marshmallows to the crowd. And as she talked about cinnamon in war time, she had his taste one marshmallow and then the other. And it was crazy, So the 1st 1 was like a cinnamon sprig flavor. You'll know it was, it was pretty tasty. And then the second was the cinnamon that used to be available from Vietnam in the 19 fifties but was discontinued in the U. S. After the war started. I had this really likes sweet and juicy and big red flavor. It was almost like too cartoonish to seem like a natural flavor. And you've kind of realised Cinnamon gum was meant to resembled a Saigon version of cinnamon, not the milder one we've grown accustomed to. And that's kind of the same with the banana like the gross Michelle was the sweeter, more custardy and really more delicious banana. It was actually so delicious that when there was a blight in the 19 fifties, and the crops started going extinct, banana companies assume people would revolt if they switched banana styles on them, which is exactly what they eventually had to do well, and to be clear, big Mike was just one of over. I don't know, like 1000 banana species in the world right now, but but but a number of them have seed so hard they'd actually like, break your teeth if you've been to them. So some are more like plantains and less sweet summer totally inedible. But the gross Michelle Banana was considered like the perfect banana. It didn't often have seeds. It didn't bruise easily, so you could just pile them on a boat without boxes. Its flavor was never off like the bananas you get in the stores today, it grew year round and it was hardy and resistant to most things. At least until this mysterious Panama disease started wiping it out in something like a decade. It basically took out all the gross Michelle's with all right. And so just just to tie this up here that the Cavendish which was the inferior banana, both in taste and how it bruised That was picked as the replacement partially because it looked like the big mike but also because it was resistant to this Panama disease that right well, you know, I was looking up styles of bananas because reading about the big mike maybe curious what other flavors you can get from a banana and hear a few of the ones I really want to try. You know, I love lists of like strange fruit. So what's in your top three? All right. I'm just going to read off my list here so so first, the one that I really want to try is called the Apple banana. It's actually so sweet. It's sometimes called the Candy Apple, but it's slightly pinkish and more juicy than irregular, banana and also sweet. And it doesn't really ever brown and you can find this in Hawaii. It's so funny. Like you say all these words like juicy and candy apple and I actually can't imagine how good it is. But what I know is I really want to try what I know. So what else you got? All right. There's something called the ice cream banana speaking once that we should try it almost sounds like I'm just making this one. Israel also called the Blue Java banana. Is this strong plant that's hardy enough to survive monsoons, but it's also got a vanilla flavour to it. And the flesh is kind of putting, like which I can't decide if that sounds delicious. But in fact, a lot of people actually eat this with a spoon. Yes, I think I've seen monkeys eat those with a spoon, but not wild monkey. Not while a lot of people call it the tastiest banana. And then there's also the red banana, which is short and sticky and also really sweet. And I don't know you get lost in all these banana descriptions that I almost wanted Banana Khanna sort of walk me through each of these things. But the fact that 99% of bananas that come to the states are Cavendish makes you crave these so much more. So I definitely want to talk more about the Cavendish in. I feel like the way it's talked about in these books is almost like this mediocre, flavorless garbage fruit. But even mediocre bananas are good well in Americans certainly do love them. I was reading this New York Times article on the secret Life of the city banana. So they're 20 million bananas distributed around New York City every week. Every single week. That's a 1,000,000 a month and 720 million bananas a year. Like I did the math so quick and that's just in New York City. That's crazy. But as much as America loves bananas, a friendly India loves them even more. So, according to a 2015 article in the Hindu. The country produces 30% of the world's bananas, but basically exports, none of it. Like their entire economies in Central and South America bill exclusively on banana exports, and India turns out all of that money. They only send out 1% of their bananas, and they hoard the rest for themselves. And unlike in the U. S. You can find tons of varieties of bananas there. That isn't the tangent I wanted to take you on. I want to tell you about the weirdest fact I learned this week. And that's that. The forbidden fruit in the Bible might actually be a banana. Like you have a tangent from hands. Thiss does sound interesting. So what do you mean by this? So couple is out this amazing argument that the banana might actually be What Eve took a bite out of and he's got all sorts of evidence for it. So you start with the fact that the banana is well, you know this Pretty suggestive looking fruit, and you could see what might be thought of as racy or forbidden. And as you know, I have both read before the Bible never actually like specifically mentions what the fruit is, but it is described in the Koran and their Koppel says it's talked about as a tree whose quote Fruit's piled one above another in long extended shade, whose season is not limited and who supply will not be cut off. And you know, as any New Englander will tell you. There's a very clear apple season. But that description as couple points out really describes the Bunches upon Bunches of bananas, growing multi generational, e and in continuous rings on the plant. And then he backs this up with talk of climate. So basically when scientists looked at the description for the Garden of Eden, and this idea of a place that's bound by four rivers, they were already thing that to the rivers with the Tigers and the Euphrates..

O. was thicker so you could just throw punches on a boat they wouldn't get bruised they were not as sensitive so this disease started spreading around they called it Panama disease because it first the problem in Panama and then by the mid twentieth century it had overtaken all of the banana production regions in Latin America there is nothing really available in terms of control so they just kept cutting down more and more forests and growing the banana it in new places until it just caught up and became unviable to continue growing this banana and there was one banana that they knew of which could withstand the rigors of large scale commercial cultivation but they did not want to substitute this banana in because they knew that it didn't taste very good they had no choice that man is called the Cavendish bananas so by around nineteen sixty all the the former grow Michelle production areas had been switched over to you Cavendish and the Cavendish is the only banana that most Americans know now so that's what got me interested in the stories that I found out that the only been and I'd ever known is actually a subpar substitute for previous banana which had been wiped out by disease this time V. the new strain of Panama disease is destroying Cavendish plantations all right so the Cavendish's threatened so what does that mean to the person who just wants to eat a banana here in the United States is it what will they become scarce the situations that could potentially arise pretty much all lead to higher prices depending on how quickly it happens we could also experience scarcity so you might see fewer bananas it's it's also possible that people will just abandon bananas as a crop in Costa Rica for example where I lay is a lot of the land that used to grow bananas now breast pineapple so if if this crowd becomes less and less appealing to producers people might stop growing it those are our worst case scenarios for the consumers in the US is there no hope of genetic engineering that could make them resistant to the disease and that is a possibility so yeah that's one Avenue we could genetically modify bananas to make them disease resistant by people have demonstrated consumers have demonstrated that they're hesitant to embrace genetically modified foods I think people would do well to to be more open to them would be especially a problem in Europe where the regulations against genetically modified foods are so strong that they basically are banned so I don't think the banana industry is all that excited about that particular Avenue so you know of bananas start to go away or become more expensive are more difficult to find it may be a mild disappointment but it's not going to be anything of like what's going to happen to millions and millions of people around the world for whom the banana is much more important right this is not an important story because your smoothie is threatened banana industry takes a hit white kids very likely will upon the spread of Panama disease tropical race for and a lot of people will lose their jobs a lot of people will lose primary sources of nutrition they can't simply chest except for the the loss of the banana so we really need to fight for the bananas future not for our sandwiches as consumers in the US but for the well being of the producer nations all right we have been talking with miles carp who is been joining us from Costa Rica this morning has done a lot of research on the problem with that but now you can find an article he wrote called the banana is one step closer to disappearing at National Geographic dot com smiles thanks for being with us on first light this morning thank you for having me and that brings us to seventeen minutes before the hour Tuesday morning with first light enjoy your banana I have one David.

"But there's an even more powerful explanation for why bananas are so cheap standardization. So the advantage of having the covenant is that it is really a monoculture that you can actually grow it consistently. Andrew byles, again, formerly of tequila. You know, that's going to take a two nine months to come to fruition. And you know how that banana is going to function when it's transported refrigerated cargo, you know how it's going to be form in the rifling rooms and the country vista nation and you know how it's going to form an hold up on the retail show. And it's not just that nearly every banana grown for export is Kevin dish. It's every Kevin dish banana, is genetically the same as the next cabin dish. From a business perspective, that's ideal the ultimate in quality control from an agricultural perspective. However, there's no diversity. So as you age plant is the same each has the same resistance to disease spreads, as you'll recall, the grow Michelle banana was wiped out years ago by Panama disease or technically FU cerium wilt, it's caused by a fungus that infects the plants roots, and eventually kills the whole plant and leaves the soil, unfit for future banana growth, the strain of Panama disease that killed off the grow Michelle was known as TR one tropical race one. Now, there's a strain called TR four. That's tacking the Kevin dish, so indeed. It's fallen victim to almost the same disease as the grow shell. So what we see is false thoughts. Apparently in Indonesia, spread for the vans, it's devastated crops, that pharma's moved the me come bell to all to me in the banana industry is very worried. The tier four will make it to Latin America. The math disease it seems to be spreading west. Coming up after the break the banana industries race to save itself, there really isn't anything else on arise. That could now out and replace Kevin. But what about science closest so acceptable societally? That's coming up right after this..
