*There are over 500 different types of bananas. That means if you ate a different kind of banana everyday, it would take almost a year and a half to eat every one.
*Although generally regarded as a tree, this large tropical plant is really a herb. That means it does not have a woody trunk like a tree. The stalk is composed of leaf sheaths that overlap each other and grow from an underground stem called a rhizome.
*The banana plant can grow as high as 20 feet; that’s as big as a two-story house.
*Bananas are @ 99.5% fat free.
*Bananas are a great source of potassium.
Now go make some banana bread!
