Default History of the "Goldfinger" Banana.....

I found this article the other day and thought it was very good reading. Sometimes, I don't think we realize all the hard work some people do so we can grow our favorite Plant! If I didn't already have a "Goldfinger" this article would make me buy one.

It's pretty interesting that the Golfinger doesn't oxidize when cut.

Mine, sans Black Sigatoga
