Why is the banana crooked?

Question by Flying Arts | 2018-01-07 at 09:23

This question is often not meant to be very serious and is used as a proverb from time to time. Nevertheless, today I am interested in a serious answer. I caught the phrase today and then wondered why bananas are actually warped and curved a bit. Maybe someone of you knows an answer.

The answer to this question is relatively simple. How do plants grow? Of course always to the light! And that's exactly what the banana plant does with its fruits.

Anyone who has ever seen a banana plant knows that bananas are hanging on the plant in perennials. The banana fruits grow laterally out of the stem of the perennial and orient upwards to the light, thereby obtaining their typical shape and curvature.
