So, you are suffering from your success. Good for you!! (I think ).

Is your banana line different from the ones we see in the grocery stores? If anything, I'd think yours would have a better flavor since I believe that all the ones in the groceries (except locally grown 'Apple' - really Brazilian) are shipped in after being gassed.
