30 Bananas a Day!

Don't shoot the messenger :)

This just came on my FB feed.

Can something be a fruit if it does not come from a seed? Is it an herb if it comes from a bulb?

Interesting.

Haha o my, I'm not sure any ever questioned if a banana is fruit. But look at that, it really doesn't have a seed! Lol. This is a good parallel train of thought of someone never questioning if a hamburger is bad for them. All of us here know it's not but I also knew of course a banana is fruit. Isn't it insane how we know the definition of something but when it comes to something learned at birth an so universally excepted that you'd never question it. Interesting indeed... : ) thanks for sharing that fun little brain teaser  

If the word "banana" came from Arabic for "finger" - it came a LONG way. They don't sound much alike besides the "B" sound.

Since you can find mammals that lay eggs, I'm sure you can still call it a fruit from a bulb. Nature is full of fun little oddities like that.
