Are there anyone out there who has relialbe information on
what types of biocides that eventually are applied on the suface of 
e.g. bananas and oranges before shipment/transport.

	I have some highly anecdotal information that banans are simply
sprayed/dipped in a cyanide soloution. 
Anyone with info on this?
