Dehydrated, Dessicated, Mummified Chiquita Banana -pule

I found this banana six years ago on the base of a utility pole in Sacramento. It had dried out in the sun, resisting attack by insects and birds, until its insides had flattened.

It might be mistaken for a vanilla bean if not for its original blue Chiquita banana sticker. This may be the oldest banana on earth.

Weighs just 1 ounce.

The banana is as solid as if it was made of wood.

I checked the color, but it is completely off the Chiquita Banana Consumer Color Preference Chart. I estimate it to be Color 54.

The shipping charge will be $1 within the United States of America, $3 to Canada and $5 to the United Kingdom.
