Do not bring bananas
Bad luck - We are serious
Back in the days of the sailing ships, sailors ate fruit to prevent the
onset of scurvy. Bananas would ripen and spoil faster than most fruits.
The bug larvae in the skin would hatch and infest not just the other
fruit but the entire ship itself. For these reasons, the banana was deemed
unfit for sailing ships. Any mention of bananas was seen as a bad omen and
would spell misfortune for the voyage.
