Hi Beast, well I am a chemical engineer by training and my motto is “without chemicals, nothing would exist!” but I don’t add any “industrial” chemicals – but anyway I also don’t have any way to ship at this point – I presume you are not in the Dominican Republic (otherwise, you’d probably already have your OWN bananas!). For bananas, one must obtain an export license I think. That may be the case for coffee as well – I am not sure. A lot of coffee and bananas here are grown without use of fertilizers, herbicides or fungicides for the simple reason that such chemicals are expensive. But there is no guarantee – when I sell coffee, nobody asks me whether I fertilized or applied anything to the crop. Same with bananas. I think all my produce is bound for domestic markets – no exporting. But the commodity market is byzantine. Anyway, thanks for the inquiry!
