Default Re: Chiquita Prices

It's very odd but in places I have not seen Chiquita bananas for a while I've started seeing them. As well as Dole. I guess it really is all about the least amount of money. I'd really like to know if there was a way to believe the PLUs about what plants they are using but nothing ever says. So they could be Grand Nain, Robusta, Williams....what else? I'm drawing a blank. Aren't there five commercial cavendish bananas that are used that all essentially look and taste the same?

At least, that's how I've read things here and there.
