Did You Know Tuesday
Did you know that since bananas grow upwards, the stem is actually the bottom of the banana?  So if you use the stem to peel your banana, you are actually peeling it upside-down.  The non-stem end of the banana is the actual top of the fruit.

Pointing at the actual top of the banana
Next time you peel your banana, peel it from the real top and not the stem end. You'll find it easier and not only that, you won't smush the end of the banana like you do when you use the stem end, and even better, you won't get any of those white stringy things (the fruit's phloem tubes) hanging off the banana either!
