The banana sector is facing difficulties at a level like never before. The war in Urania has created a marketing problem and a significant increase in the prices of all inputs associated with banana cultivation. The crisis is big and real, that's why the good news of bringing to Ecuador the new variety tolerant to Raca 4, fills us with hope that it will also bring the expectation of a safer future for the entire industry.

Formosana 218 is the only variety that is already proven in all three important respects:

  1. High tolerance to Fusarium race 4.
  2. Agronomic aspects, high yield and excellent fruit quality.
  3. Marketing aspects, characteristics and flavor suitable for international markets, just like the original Cavendish varieties.
