schestowitzI said:Jan 28 21:51
schestowitzBanana is such an amazing fruit. It's a 'domesticated' fruit, much like cows in the animal kingdom. We humans refined them over generations to fit our needs. The banana has ridged for the grip, it's bent on purpose, and it's easy to peel because people selected and bred them for these chracteristics over hundreds of years, like they do with breed of dogs or farm animals. Some fruit is very wild and raw, but banana is one of Jan 28 21:51
schestowitzthose great things that adapted to us rather than the other way around. With the seeds so small that they require no removal (like pits/kernels) it's easy to put in a shake, carry in a bag without it rotting, and it's easy to eat it cleanly (unlike the fruit banana was derived from, which tasted worse and was hard for human to eat).Jan 28 21:51
