Apart from the regular yellow banana and the raw green banana, chances are you have come across the red banana. But have you ever seen a blue banana? No, right? Well, you might find this bizarre, but a blue banana actually exists and it apparently tastes like vanilla ice cream!
GO BANANAS is hosted by the Taiwan Banana Research Institute (TBRI) in collaboration with Taiwan Sugar Corporation, NAN ART, and the Cultural & Creativity Development Foundation. Founded in 1970 and based in Jiuru Township, Pingtung County, the TBRI is dedicated to promoting Taiwan’s banana industry.
The TBRI is known for developing six disease-resistant varieties. It has helped numerous local farmers mass-produce disease-resistant banana trees.
Taiwan’s world-leading banana expertise has led to many collaborations with other countries, such as Australia. Once called the “pride of Taiwan,” the nation’s bananas were world-famous during the golden era of the banana industry in the 1960s and ’70s.
