Ecuador, one of the largest exporter of bananas in the world, have hundreds of different types of bananas. The bananas here range from plantains, maduros, maduro verdes, red bananas, tiny bananas, triangular bananas, and much more. Driving through Guayaquil, one can see endless fields of banana plantations. It was not until a few weeks ago that I found out bananas are one of Ecuador's largest export. Having lived in Ecuador for about two months, I would never have known that this is true due to the fact that bananas are extremely cheap here. I still remembered I got fourteen bananas at the market for just a dollar. This minimum cost of manufacturing does not mean low quality. While here in Ecuador, banana has become one of my favorite fruits!
