Caption: Stem of green bananas Musa sp. covered with a plastic bag to protect the ripening fruit against fruit flies, birds & other interested parties. 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 & 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 & requiring high light intensity & rainfall.
