Conventional and Organic Banana
Although many people believe bananas grow on trees, these perennial plants are actually herbs. A sturdy pseudostem, which can grow as high as 25 feet, supports the growth of leaves, and within six or seven months, flourish. The flowers become the “berries” or fruit. Clusters grow into bunches, often called “hands” or “combs,” and the “fingers” (fruit) turn from green to yellow as starch is converted into sugar. Fruit can measure up to a foot in length with an average width of 1.5 to 2 inches.
