Interesting facts about bananas

Today I learned some really interesting things about bananas:

Bananas don’t actually grow on trees—they grow on plants that are officially classified as an herb (not surprisingly, the world’s largest herb). They’re in the same family as lilies, orchids, and palms.

Americans eat an average of 27 pounds of bananas per person every year.

Residents of Uganda eat an average of 500 pounds of bananas per person every year.

Rubbing a banana peel on your forehead can help cure a headache.

People started cultivating bananas 9,000 years ago.
