The banana is the most important fruit within the global culinary landscape. Although not necessarily superior in flavour or production quality, the common banana commercially sold is known as the Cavendish banana. Due to the demise of a now-extinct variety, the Gros Michel, or "Big Mike," in the late 1960's, the Cavendish has dominated the market since the 1970's. The banana has a highly regarded culinary value as it is one of the world's most accessible and ideal foods: it is nutritious, convenient, affordable and always growing. It also turns out that each Cavendish banana growing throughout the world is a direct clone of one another, identical twins to the first one discovered in Southeast Asia, in shape, size and flavour.

Cavendish bananas are the quintessential fresh-eating banana, but they are also considered a standard among dessert bananas. They can be utilized as an ingredient in smoothies, yogurts, cereal, cakes, muffins, breads, ice cream, cookies, pudding and more. Favourable pairings include tropical friends such pineapple, guava and mango, cinnamon and nutmeg, granola, chocolate, vanilla, stone fruits, berries, lemon and lemon zest and caramel.
