Misplaced in The Carolina Park in Quito, far away from his home plantation, is this lone supplier of the deformed fruit.
He hangs with the branches. He is thinking of the low wages of the banana plantation workers and their lack of union rights. He mourns because of the tropical storms in the Caribbean that have done away with so many of its fellow species. Not to talk about the concerns of corruption in the state administration.
But the Park Management has now taken responsibility and contacted one of the world's top specialists in banana tree psycology from Harvard, to free this unhappy fruit tree from his heavy depression. Sad banana trees give as we all know, sad bananas.
