The Banana

By Daniel Pollak-Hurst

The banana is a high calorie fruit that grows in tropical environments. The average banana has 105 calories and is high in fibers and potassium. Bananas have many healthy minerals.

Bananas were not always bananas. They started in southwest asia as plantains. They could come in many different colors such as green, red, and even blue! When they came to the americas by trade, the sweet yellow type we know now was developed.

These are the industrious banana farms of southeast asia. But some have problems. There is a "sickness" for bananas. They make the people that eat them very sick. Now we have developed a mutant strain of bananas that is immune to these sicknesses.

Bananas are a weird food. The have slightly more trace of radioactivity than all other fruits.
