Cavendish makes the banana a royal

Did you know that the name of the today economically most important banana is Cavendish? Named after William Cavendish who had already planted bananas from China in 1830? This William Cavendish was the sixth duke of Devonshire and I’m wondering why the banana’s yellow and not blue. What with the royality and everything..
