Torrential rains strand southbound banana-laden trucks; Federal Govt. urged to fly them out.

So up go the prices again:

With most of the crops stranded, there were calls for the Federal Government to fly the bananas out of the area as rain continued to destroy crops. Australian Banana Growers Council chairman Patrick Leahy said more than 10 per cent of the crop had been destroyed and that the damage bill could exceed $600,000.

I love the way they want to call in the airforce. Bananas must be saved!

And just when we thought bananas were back for good*.

*Check out the banana-and-blueberry stuffed French Toast. I want one now.
