Any Brazilian fruit stand or greengrocer’s is a true festival for the senses. Sometimes the surprise is not related to the exotic – abundant as exotic fruits are. The best known fruits are also full of surprises. Take the humble bananas.


On the photograph you can see, clockwise, four types of different bananas: nanica, prata, ouro and da terra. There are several others (figo, maçã, …). The moment you can identify them with ease you realize your process of cultural adaptation is well under way.
