  1. Container ships may deliver cheap bananas, but what they cant do is deliver green bananas, to taste them you should come to Ecuador

  2. For packing, palletizing crating and shipping with professional teams and guaranteed flat rate quotes

  3. Hello PolyMatter, would you be interested in supporting the growth of our channels by subscribing to each other?

  4. Bro, just one thing besides the great video. That is not the Ecuadorian flag, that is Colombian flag. Try to be aware of that next time.

  5. Tip: If the video title is about container ships, describe them, not how bananas ripen. Even something like "bananas are protected better when shipped in containers because they are not subject to rough manhandling in sacks"

  6. This is NOT about how a container ship works, fail ! This is why remotely grown goods like bananas are cheaper than locally grown crop.

  7. Anyone who has ever eaten a freshly harvested ripe banana in its home environment has some difficulty eating the "bananas" on offer at Euro and USA supermarkets.

  8. Bananas only grow near the equator? Lol I grow them fine in Northern California…. Check out the fruit I just harvested.
