Bananas are the main source of the island's economy, along with tourism. Approximately 40% of the cultivated area on La Palma is dedicated to the cultivation of bananas.
The products grown are mainly destined for the Spanish market, around 95%. The large area of land it occupies, added to its importance in economic terms, make the banana a factor of capital social, economic and environmental importance for the island. For some years now, more and more farmers have decided to opt for an ecological, sustainable crop, without the use of pesticides and respectful of the environment, which, being an island, is even more fragile.
