A banana is an elongated, edible fruit – botanically a berry – produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants in the genus Musa. Bananas work really well on porridge or just as they are!
The type of banana you see in the supermarket is called a Cavendish banana. The preferred variety was originally the Gros Michel, which essentially became extinct by 1960, thanks to a fungus called Panama disease.
The scientific name for banana is musa sapientum, which means “fruit of the wise men.”
Bananas float in water, as do apples and watermelons.
