The banana story
« on: July 07, 2014, 06:57:35 PM »
I eat them. I knew they are good because they taste good. But after reading this article, I was surprised how great they are. Here we get bananas from the Philippines or Taiwan. Usually about 5 for $1 when they go on sale. They are not big, but a little bigger then being small. Taiwanese bananas are much more tastier though.

Here's the article.

Good to know the benefits since bananas are about the only fruit that's affordable!

I know you know this, but others don't.  Peaches here can cost up to $5 for 2 peaches, crazy I tell you.

I understand fruit nowadays is very expensive in the States also. I do miss eating them Florida oranges though. Here they sell for a buck a piece.

i don't have a clue what oranges sell for. i have found i cannot eat most fruit. i subsist on walmart sausage and canned vegetables.  torqued me when the sausage price went up. now i hear chicken is going to come down....baghack! cluck, cluck, cluck.

if i look t the 'law' of supply and demand, and the birthrate, it makes sense that prices for food go up as the world population goes up. sucks to be us.

I know this may sound so weird, but watermelons cost between $18 to $36 here. It's like we are pricing ourselves to starvation.
