This issue examines one of the most ubiquitous, widely recognised and popular fruits on the planet. Large-scale farming has made this tropical fruit accessible almost year-round in most countries, while its near-phallic shape frequently stirs the sexual imagination of fully-grown adults. But perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of the banana is its role in the beginning and end of our lives; its soft, easy-to-mash texture makes it suitable for both teething babies and the toothless elderly. Learn everything about the banana, from its ripeness and size, to how to peel, handle, and store it. Humorous but informative illustrations and photos complete this authoritative banana guide.
