Something you may or may not know


The banana – a common fruit in most countries. Most people love them or like them, they are full of vitamins and they are a great restitution fruit after a workout!

…And the banana does not cooperate. You find yourself bending the banana in every way possible trying to open it.

But have you ever watched a monkey, who I think we can all agree on is a banana expert, try to open one?


They start at this end. Get a banana, and try it. Pinch the tip, and you’ll find that the banana easily opens – every time!


I’ve been so excited about this new trick that I’ve been buying bananas just so I can try it again and again. It’s cool, try it!



  1. LOL!! I love bananas. I never did when I was little because they grow in abundance here but when I moved to London in 2009 to study, I had to have them all the time! Cool trick

  2. You are so hillariously amazing Sarah! Thank you for teaching your ol´mamma some new tricks!!! :-) Love ya!!!

  3. I had no idea - I'm so trying this trick. No more mushy banana top!

    I have a new microwave meal posting today. Check it out and see what you think. It's not a food blog, but I thought this was a brilliant dish.
