Where bananas are grown

Bananas are produced in 135 countries and territories across the tropics and subtropics. The majority producers are farmers who grow the crop for either home consumption or for local markets (less than 15 per cent of the global production of more than 144 million metric tonnes1 is exported). The goal of this section is to explore all the banana-producing countries and territories. All the pages categorized Banana-producing countries will be added to this page.
