Bananas growing in a greenhouse in Iceland

Although Iceland is reliant upon fishing and aluminum production as the mainstays of its economy, there is also some banana production.[1] However, this does not occur on a commercial scale, but was an experiment to show that water from the hot geysers could provide a localised climate sufficient for this.

The BBC quiz programme QI claims that Iceland is the largest European banana producer.[2][3] However, in 2007, the largest European banana producer by far was Spain.[4]

Iceland is a net importer of bananas, amounting to approximately 14 kg per capita per annum.[5]
