I was going through Mark's Fruit Power Ranking list in The Primal Blueprint and found that Bananas are low pesticide risk (i.e Fruit with tough, inedible skin ) and have gr8 nutritional value. However it doesn't figure on Mark's favorites list. Is it because that bananas are not very popular in the U.S (I'm from India and it is the main tropical fruit in my country). Are bananas equally good as berries which are not easily available here, as India has a tropical climate (After all, berries are grown largely in temperate climates right)?

Most of my fruit intake comprises of locally grown bananas.

So I would like to know, just how good are Bananas vis-a-vis other primal fruits?

Would be glad to get feedback....
