Learn More About The Banana Drawing

The banana is a familiar fruit. In fact, it is one of the most important food crops in the world. Bananas grow in tropical regions, and the fruit is shipped all around the world.

Contrary to popular belief, bananas don't grow on trees. Banana plants are actually giant herbs, and the trunk is made of the plant's many leaf stems.

Each banana plant may produce a bunch of up to 150 bananas.

Did you know? Each banana fruit is called a "finger," and clusters of bananas are called "hands."

After the fruit is harvested, the plant is cut down as each stem produces just one bunch of fruit. Then, more stems will grow from the roots to form new banana plants.

How do you eat your bananas? Many people each them fresh, right out of the peel. Others fry them or use them to make desserts such as pies.

In Micronesia, an island chain in the Pacific, banana rice is a common food. Sweet bananas are cooked, mashed, and mixed with rice and coconut cream.

In the Dominican Republic and other South and Central American countries, green bananas called plantains are boiled and eaten along with seasoned meat, beans, and rice.

Banana leaves are also used to wrap foods such as tamales for cooking.

Bananas are sometimes depicted in fine art, such as in the classic bowl of fruit. In popular culture, bananas may represent the favorite food of cartoon monkeys; they may leave their peels behind for someone unwary to trip upon; or, they may form part of a comedic fruit hat, such as in the 2011 film Rio.
