One of the most consistent items in our baskets from week to week is BANANAS! So, what do you know about bananas? Here’s a fun little FAQ I have assembled about bananas for you!
- Bananas are one of the oldest cultivated plants, and are grown in over 100 countries. Bountiful Baskets bananas come from small farmers in Central Mexico.
- Bananas grown wild have large, hard seeds, but through centuries of cultivation, the seeds in our bananas are very, very tiny.
- Bananas are the fruit of the largest herb!
- An individual banana is called a finger.
- Bananas are slightly radioactive (it’s the potassium)!
- Bananas can be used as an egg substitute in yeast-free baking (1/2 banana=1 egg) (except for when eggs act as leavening)
