Bananas are herbs
There are both male and female banana trees. If the tree has a big flower it’s a female, a smaller bloom denotes a male.
Is a banana a fruit or a herb?
Both. A banana (the yellow thing you peel and eat) is undoubtedly a fruit , though since commercially grown banana plants are sterile, the seeds are reduced to little specks. The banana plant is called a 'banana tree' in popular use, but it's technically regarded as a herbaceous plant (or 'herb'), not a tree, because the stem does not contain true woody tissue. Its trunk is not a true one, but many leaves tightly wrapped around a single stem which emerges at the top as the fruit-bearing flower stalk.
The fruit fingers grow in clumps known as hands,since they resemble a hand with fingers. The entire stalk, known as a bunch, takes up to a year for the fruit to ripen enough to be harvested. The original stem dies after producing fruit, but sideshoots rise from the same underground corm to produce a new plant to be harvested the following year. The fruit itself is sterile, unable to produce a plant from the miniscule dark seeds within.
Some banana trees continue producing up to one hundred years, although most banana plantations renew their stock every ten to twenty-five years.
Bananas are the world's best-selling fruit, outranking the apple and orange.
Banana shakes, banana pancakes, the list goes on; this fruit is part of any tourist’s staple diet! But it’s not just the fruit that’s used:
The flower is boiled with coconut milk to make a tasty soup
The leaves serve as food wrappings and plates
The stalk’s fibres are extremely strong and are used to make rope, string or twine which, in turn, are used to weave baskets, hats and place mats.
The banana also plays its part in a very important Thai festival. The stalk is used to make floats for the Loi Krathong festival, which takes place every November and pays homage to the goddess of water.
