Getting to Know Alternative Bananas

So you may have already heard that the banana we've all come to love, the Cavendish, is likely to become endangered during our lifetimes thanks to the highly contagious Panama Disease. While that stinks, it doesn't mean the end of bananas all together. Instead, we'll just switch to a new cultivar like our grandparents did when they moved from the Gros Michel to the Cavendish.

So what are our options banana-wise? WebEcoist has the answer with a rundown of 7 different bananas we all might be eating in the near future. The ones above are the ae ae bananas that grow in Hawaii and Florida. I don't know how they taste, but they sure look cool.

I used to like a variety of banana sold in the US as "apple banana" although it seems to have several other names. It actually has a slight apple taste to it. But after a couple months of my local grocery store carrying it for one season, I haven't seen it again in a normal store.
