bananas 🍌 tasty treats ruined only by ridiculous stringy things 😢 but why?! 😭
#tdil the reason why those stringy banana bits exist 👍🏻
we’ve all been there – picking stringy banana gubbs out of our teeth or trying (unsuccessfully) to peel a banana without the stringy menace appearing. but have you ever wondered why they’re even a thing?
well, i’ve done the leg work for you and it turns out that they’re actually quite important 😳 like, without them, no bananas 🍌
their actual name is ‘phloem bundles’ and they’re the things that ensure that the banana grows and survives whilst it is stuck to a tree 🌴.
they do this by transporting food from the leaves of the tree to the rest of the tree … in turn giving the banana nutrients and subsequently their flavour 👍🏻
that’s literally it 😂 to flesh out this post a little … here’s a bonus fact that’ll help you no longer have stringy bits!
all you need to do is peel it like a monkey – from the bottom to the stem … let’s face it, monkeys are the banana experts, so… 💁🏼 (this apparently works … it never has for me … but i can’t successfully do many things 😂)
