In the vein of the bestselling Salt and Cod, a gripping chronicle of the myth, mystery, and uncertain fate of the worldas most popular fruit In this fascinating and surprising exploration of the bananaas history, cultural significance, and endangered future, award-winning journalist Dan Koeppel gives readers plenty of food for thought. Fast-paced and highly entertaining, "Banana" takes us from jungle to supermarket, from corporate boardrooms to kitchen tables around the world. We begin in the Garden of Edenaexamining scholarsa belief that Eveas aapplea was actually a bananaa and travel to early-twentieth-century Central America, where aptly named abanana republicsa rose and fell over the crop, while the companies now known as Chiquita and Dole conquered the marketplace. Koeppel then chronicles the bananaas path to the present, ultimatelyaand most alarminglyataking us to banana plantations across the globe that are being destroyed by a fast-moving blight, with no cure in sightaand to the high-tech labs where new bananas are literally being built in test tubes, in a race to save the worldas most beloved fruit.
