It has become clear when there will be a banana famine in Russia 18:16

Russians can expect disruptions in banana supplies from Ecuador in the near future due to the ban on imports of products from five Ecuadorian producers, effective February 6. This opinion was expressed in a conversation with by Oleg Knyazkov, head of the Industrial Expertise Center (RSHB) of Rosselkhozbank.

According to Knyazkov, a noticeable shortage of bananas will begin in about a month. This is because previously sent shipments still have time to reach Russian stores.

But Russians will not have to completely deprive themselves of their usual fruits. Partial banana imports from India have already been established, although there are still logistical challenges. Additionally, negotiations are ongoing with Ecuador to restart supplies.

According to Knyazkov, the temporary famine can be compensated by growing bananas in Russia. Successful experiments in acclimatization to tropical climate
Installations have already been carried out in the Krasnodar region.

The expert also recommends that Russians consume more domestically produced seasonal fruits and vegetables. According to him, they are healthier than imported analogues, as they grow in familiar conditions and do not require protection.

“Consumers purchasing seasonal fruits and vegetables will protect themselves from the risk of product spoilage. It is especially beneficial to buy products directly from farmers,” emphasized Knyazkov.

According to the expert, if the shortage of bananas continues, Russians will start buying other fruits such as apples, citrus fruits, cucumbers and tomatoes.
