A banana is an edible fruit usually elongated and curved, with soft flesh rich in starch covered with a rind, which may be green, yellow, red, purple, or brown when ripe
A banana is an edible fruit – botanically a berry – produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants in the genus Musa. In some countries, bananas used for cooking may be called "plantains", distinguishing them from dessert bananas. The fruit is variable in size, color, and firmness, but is usually elongated and curved, with soft flesh rich in starch covered with a rind, which may be green, yellow, red, purple, or brown when ripe. The fruits grow in clusters hanging from the top of the plant.
Musa species are native to tropical Indomalaya and Australia, and are likely to have been first domesticated in Papua New Guinea. They are grown in 135 countries, primarily for their fruit, and to a lesser extent to make fiber, banana wine, and banana beer and as ornamental plants.

The one thing I can bake well is a banana bread and this twist with cinnamon seems like a good fit for me. Truth of the matter is I don't know I'd be too great with all the swirling and I definitely won't be finishing with slices of banana on the top. Still I like the recipe and it's something I...

I have a single papaya tree in my garden and that tree has been growing like mad. Now I have an excess of fruit and actively seeking ways of consuming it. This morning I tossed in half a fruit with some bananas and a feeble looking strawberry. It was delicious!

I have never made banana pudding; I am more familiar with banana bread which is a lot simpler, in my opinion. However, I think banana pudding would make a very nice dessert.

Oh, precious and dear 'Trail-mix'. :)

As usual, I have two bananas that are going bad, so I'm going to make this bread later. I was going to make it as is, but when I pulled out my bread pans to look for the appropriate size, it dawned on me that I could make two smaller breads, rather than one large one. I owe a friend a dessert...

As a child growing up, when it came to choosing between figs and bananas I have always chosen figs. However, these days I tend to favour bananas more. I have always been hearing of the health benefits of bananas, but was wondering if figs had similar benefits or not as much. It appears to me...
