Mrs. H. lives in Hollywood, California. Today, while working on some other jobs, a banana stand stood alone.

This post shows the four steps on how to to hang bananas.

First a little history. According to The World's Healthiest Foods, the banana plant grows 10 to 26 feet and belongs to the same family as the lily and the orchid. The cluster of fruits contain any where from 50 to 150 bananas with individual fruits grouped in bunches, known as "hands," containing 10 to 25 bananas. According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, a single fruit is about 125 grams on average; about three quarters of this is water. Each banana (or finger) has a protective outer layer (called peel or skin). There is a fleshy part inside. Both the skin and inner part can be eaten. Western cultures generally eat the inside raw and throw away the skin while some Asian cultures generally eat both the skin and inside cooked. Now let's hang those bananas. 

Step 1: Fig.1 Above shows a nice bunch of ripe Bananas.
