A banana is a plant, not a tree, though strictly an herb. The term banana is also applied to the elongated fruit, technically a false berry, which grows in edible species and varieties, in hanging clusters, several to many fruits to a tier, called a ‘hand’, many tiers to a bunch. The total of hanging clusters is called a 'stem' in the commercial world. Grown in the warm and humid tropics, bananas are picked and shipped green. Contrary to nature’s norm, they are one fruit that develops better flavor when ripened off the bush.
