The "perfect banana" might soon be gone

I've read about this before too but I wonder if it's a problem only in the West or if it's worldwide. Where I live, I regularly see at least 5 kinds of banana for sale in the market and in groceries.

Saving the banana when the Cavendish collapses will depend on our finding yet another variety and having similar luck. Alternatively, someone might be able to breed a new, resistant banana using some mix of new technologies and ancient varieties. But if they are going to do so, it will need to be soon.

They'll probably create another variant or something.

That's a good variety, shame it might be gone soon. But then again it's pretty guaranteed that a similar version will eventually pop up to replace it. Bananas as a whole will not go away as it's big business in a lot of areas.
