Banana Ideas

Recommended Posts

1) If all bananas are clones, then why are some bigger than others?

2) Do a coverage video on the topic of the banana massacre. Pretty much Chiquita (the most popular banana brand) was responsible for a massacre of its workers. Death counts vary, but it is an interesting topic on a ubiquitous brand.

Clones dont have to be identical, phenotypic variance can occur due to differing levels of nutrients supplied to each fruit along with pest loads among many other things such as sunlight recieved by each tree and internal differences inside each tree that affect the growth of fruit, Think of identical twins, they don't always end up the same size, if you were to feed one less than the other they would end up different sizes.  I cant imagine they will do anything that may be construed as slander on a large company (unles its a long time ago) as they may get themself into hot water!

The banana massacre happened in December, 1928. I don't see how that is any different than a coverage video on the dark side of Disney, coke, etc.
