The banana trade was a major force in the development of Jamaica in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Bananas were a new crop to Jamaica, and they quickly became the island's most important export. The banana trade brought prosperity to many people in Jamaica, but it also had a number of negative consequences, including environmental damage and the exploitation of workers.
