I Love bananas, but hate Cavendish bananas...
I had loved bananas since I was a small child and when I was in high school I no longer liked the taste... I was in Hawaii and had a banana from a produce market and I was in love again. I later learned that what I did not like was the taste of the Cavendish banana, which 50 years later I still can not stand the taste of. I was of the era when the "Big Mike" was king and when the commercial producers switched to the Cavendish, is when I stopped eating bananas. I lived in Florida for 27 years and most of the bananas that home owners grow there are either Cavendish or lady fingers and a few Plantains. My home grown Cavendish were slightly better than the store bought ones, but still not what I wanted. I now live in Tennessee and can no longer grow my own, but I am looking for someplace to buy bananas (on line) that are something close to a "Big Mike" in taste.
