COP26 in Glasgow puts more pressure on all nations to reduce their carbon footprint, one of which is the import of tropical fruits like papayas, bananas, mangos, kiwis, pineapple among others.

Money has been set aside for research. The German University of Weihenstephan, besides others, advises companies how in future to tap into the lucrative business to grow right at the doorstep of the consumer's exotic fruits at affordable prices and for better quality by freshness. This will reduce the transportation carbon dioxide footprint.

In Spain, a young female farmer successfully grows mangos ready to be sold in Germany. All over Europe, such visionary innovations are currently seeing greater financial and political support. Hedge Funds and crowdfunding is boosting the process as the solution is worth the current effort. Nothing is impossible when the human mind wants to achieve something and reach a certain destiny, not only to live on the moon and mars.

The temperature in Europe is rising making farming possible for crops never thought possible to ever be grown in cold climates. The UK grows grapes and starts making wine unheard of generations long time passed away.

The trend is clear the road is open. It seems more likely one day Germany will sell pineapples to Ghana. But what will Ghana sell to make an income? After all, the Chinese sell tomatoes paste to them while their industry has collapsed.
