Caption: Banana plantation. A stem of green bananas Musa sp. hanging from a banana tree on a plantation. Bananas are an important tropical fruit (botanically a berry) second only to grapes in the international fruit trade. They are eaten raw as a fruit when ripe and cooked when green to provide a starchy food, nutritionally equivalent to the potato. The plant is a monocotyledon (single seed leaf) growing in tropical humid areas and requiring high light intensity and rainfall. This photograph was taken on a plantation on the fertile Mekong Delta, Vietnam.
