According to NAN, when sellers and buyers were asked for the reason behind the high patronage; they said it was because of cheaper prices, smooth skin, fresh appearance, smooth skin and taste.
This is not a welcomed idea for many and according to NAN, recent statistics indicate that Nigeria produces about 2.74 million tonnes of banana annually, making the crop one of the important staple crops in the country.
This will also affect local farmers sale and might discourage some farmers out of business.
Besides, the source of this fruit is not yet known and no one knows the long term effect of the genetic engineering process of this fruit.
