There are many varieties of banana. Most Americans have only ever seen a Cavendish because it ships well and as Jack has suggested it is dieing out. The suppliers are going to intermittently cut deliveries to small places first

I am pretty sure this disease is only affecting the Cavendish variety. If you are old enough, you will remember other types of bananas, smaller ones with more flavor. Those are fine and will probably be making a come back.

True and you do once in a while see Lady Fingers in the stores, which I do think taste better, but they are about twice as expensive and don't ship or store as well
