The Philippines has one of the sweetest and most delicious tasting bananas in the world so much so that the best of the best of these bananas are being exported. That’s why what is left in our local markets for public consumption are those that are small, has dark spots on the outside which make it look like it’s rotten and are generally unattractive to the eye but still sweet to the taste buds.
I find this set-up quite absurd. That’s why every time I have the chance, I buy those big, more expensive, ‘export-quality’ Cavendish bananas in supermarkets (wherein there are only a few) even if for me they taste like cardboard and they easily spoil.
It is my way of saying to The Global Man that we too deserve “the best.” Even if they’re just bananas.
