Bananas


A tropical fruit that develop in large bunches. Bananas are harvested while the fruits are still green and continue to ripen after they are picked. Bananas are eaten by almost every culture throughout the world. The banana fruit are eaten fresh but can also cooked or grilled. Other varieties of the banana called "plantain" are eaten as a starchy vegetable. In Asia, the banana flowers (see banana blossoms) are sliced and eaten in salads.
