Loh Yi Jun, junandtonic.com | Siti Aiysyah Tumin, Khazanah Research Institute
The humble banana is Malaysia's second most consumed fruit, topped only by coconuts, and yes, we have it more than durians! And while the world banana market might be dominated by one variety of banana—the Cavendish—over here in Malaysia, we're blessed with over 100 different cultivars. This week, Siti Aiysyah Tumin, a researcher from the Khazanah Rsearch Institute, talks about her published study of the Malaysian banana industry, divulges some surprising findings, and shares her favourite banana cultivars with us.
