Not all the questions in life are important questions.
I eat a lot of bananas. Over a dozen a week. And I’ve noticed that Chiquita bananas are different than Dole or Del Monte bananas. With other bananas, I can just pull on the stem and it splits the peel. But that doesn’t work with a Chiquita banana; I have to bite the peel to split it.
My understanding is that all of the bananas sold in stores are Cavendish cultivars (unless you buy some noticeably exotic cultivars) so I feel that they shouldn’t be any significant differences between them.
Is there something about the way the Chiquita buyers choose their product that makes them different? Do they perhaps buy them from other regions or harvest them at different times or ship them by different methods?
