WASHINGTON, D.C. - Back during the 2012 presidential campaign President Obama told a crowd at a political rally in Detroit's Carburetor Arena that he was going to see what he could do to help stimulate Michigan's economy.
He noted that there were literally dozens of empty automobile plants throughout the state that would never open again.
The president hit upon an idea that he presented to his closest advisers to study.
After noting that all of the bananas consumed in the United States come from Costa Rica, he figured that he would look into the possibility of having bananas grown in the state of Michigan.
His advisers studied the feasibility of the plan, code named La Chiquita Idea, for five months and they finally came up with a plan.
Beginning in August, the United States Department of Agriculture is going to be planting banana trees on a 27,000 acre tract of land located just outside of Saginaw, Michigan.
All of the conditions are conducive to growing bananas just as good, as big, and as nutritious as the ones that come from Costa Rica.
