Can You Make a Wish on a Banana?

Many people have been making wishes for years on four leaf clovers, chicken bones, and the first star out at night. But you can make a wish on a banana too. Before you eat it, make a wish. To learn if your wish will come true, cut a thin slice from the bottom of the banana, from the end where it grew on the stalk. If you find a spot in the shape of a “Y”, your wish will come true.

The banana plant is not a tree even though it grows up to 25′ high. After the plant bears one bunch of fruit, it dies, and farmers must grow new ones from shoots produced by the roots of the mature banana plant before its fruit is picked.

The record for eating bananas is held by a California doctor, who ate 17 bananas in two minutes!
