Over a thousand species of banana have been recorded in the wild. Although most do not have the desired agronomic characteristics — such as high yields of seedless, nonacidic fruits with long shelf life — that would make them a direct substitute for the Cavendish, they are an untapped genetic resource. Scientists could search within them for resistance genes and other desirable traits to use in engineering and breeding programs.
