There I was preparing some brussel sprouts for dinner thinking I was lucky to be able to find them in our local supermarket.
This got me thinking. Why is it that the banana has been so successful and crossed every (I exaggerate) cultural boundary and are very commonly available. What marketing guru/trick led to the mass adoption of the banana?
Most probably the Caribbean trade routes/slave trade routes sadly enough.
We did plant some sprout plants in the veg garden but these have not done much as the soil is really not to their liking.
