Bananas About Fruit!
There are around 70 varieties of bananas. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors, textures, and flavors.
Bananas are the world’s most popular fruit. They are harvested nearly year round in tropical countries.
Some people think that bananas grow on trees like apples or oranges do. But they actually grow on plants called banana plants. These plants are herbaceous flowering plants.
Bananas are a good source of potassium which is an important mineral for the human body. They are also high in fibre and low in sugar.
The size of a banana varies by species, but typical they are long with a slight curve. Bananas ripen from green to yellow to brown as they mature on the plant.
Most people agree, the best time to eat bananas is when they turn gold or yellow because these fruits will be firm but sweet!
