In this teardown, we open a banana to see what's inside. Yellow and delicious, but most importantly, yellow.

  • Step 1
    • Take one banana from the bunch.
    • Don't squeeze too hard!
  • Step 2
    • Hold the banana in your left hand and grip the stem between your right thumb and forefinger.
  • Step 3
    • Pull the stem downward until the peel splits.
  • Step 4
    • Insert your thumbs into the split of the peel and pull the two sides apart.
    • Expose the top of the banana. It may be slightly squished from pulling on the stem, but this will not affect the flavor.
  • Step 5
    • Pull open the peel, starting from your original split, and opening it along the length of the banana.
  • Step 6
    • Remove fruit from peel.
  • Step 7
    • Eat and enjoy!
    • This is where you'll need your teeth.
    • Do not choke on banana!
