Selina Wamucii supplies fresh and healthy Kenya Cavendish bananas to the rest of the world as well as the local market, sourced from smallholder farmers in Kenya.
The Cavendish banana exported by Selina Wamucii is the most popular banana variety that is consumed worldwide. In fact the greatest percentage of bananas that fill the shelves of Western supermarkets are ultimately the Cavendish type. The greatest advantage of the Cavendish banana, just like many varieties of bananas, lies in the fact that they are highly affordable and non-seasonal hence available all year round. The Kenya Cavendish banana is mainly grown in Kenya’s highlands especially in Central and Nyanza regions.
The Cavendish banana reached the borough of Devonshire in England in the late 19th century from Mauritius. Before that, the Canary Islands had been the cradle from which Portuguese explorers from the 1500s dispersed the variety to a number of countries, including Western Europe and the Americas. However, African varieties of Cavendish, especially the dwarf cultivar, the most popular in Western nations, came into the continent from the original home of the banana, South-east Asia at a very early age. From there they dispersed into Kenya, Uganda and West Africa.
