Have you ever had your fill now of the fruit that’s high in Potassium?

Bananas have been around for quite a long time and differ from a”plantain”. Plantain’s are more starchy and not as sweet, are eaten cooked instead of raw like a banana and the skin on a plantain is thicker and comes in many different colors like black, green or yellow.

The old saying”money does not grow on trees” also applies to bananas. Bananas do not grow on trees ; they come in the largest herbaceous flowering plant. The banana plant grows all above ground from a structure usually known as a corm. This plant grows very tall up to 25′ and has a very thick stem that could be confused for a trunk.

A stem develops that grows up within the Pseudostem, carrying the immature inflorescence until finally it emerges at the top.’ 1 Each banana plant generates one inflorescence that’s also called the banana heart. This plant stem or Pseudostem dies off and generally produces offshoots in the base so the process of generating more peanuts repeats itself.

The first time I saw a banana plant and had the chance to witness how they’re grown was remarkable. Each banana is formed inside the inflorescence which has many bracts that sit in between rows of flowers. They grow and develop in the banana center in the form of clusters, composed of several tiers. There may be up to 20 bananas per each tier and as many as 20 tiers each bunch.

To get a banana plant to grow can take anywhere between 9-12 months. This all depends on the location of this plant, the sun and the heat of the roots. The banana plant blossoms after 12 months but in the tropics usually around 9 months because of the warm temperature and moisture from the atmosphere.
