2.Whether your banana is yellow, slightly spotty, or brown, it can still be eaten and cooked.
3.Bananas are a safe first solid food for babies. It was Timmy's first solid food!
4.Bananas are great for your heart beacause of their potassium levels.
5.Bananas can be made into a variety of foods. Here are a few: cakes, pies, smoothies, milkshakes, breads, muffins, cupcakes, and oatmeal.
6.A banana bunch is called a hand.
7.A lighter banana bread can be made from unripe bananas.
8.Bananas contain vitamin C. It helps protect sock monkeys from eye disease.
9.The banana is considered a berry.
10.You can ripen bananas, mangoes, and advocadoes faster by placing them in a paper bag with a tomato or apple. The gas released by the apple or tomato is trapped in the bag, and causes the fruit to ripen.
