One Hundred Banana Trees in Iceland

The first banana tree was planted in Iceland in 1942.

Is Iceland Europe’s largest banana-producing country? If you’ve visited Iceland you may have heard this before. Around 100 banana plants exist in a geothermally-heated greenhouse in Hveragerði, Iceland Review reports.

The greenhouse is part of the Agriculture University of Iceland’s campus in Reykir and the fruit is only used in-house while the bananas sold on the market in Iceland are imported.
