Ever wondered where your bananas came from? Take a close look ata banana flower with the associated fruit already formed. A couple more months and this will be ready for eating. Not to waste anything, the flower is used a food by some Southeast Asian cultures.

The plant dies after each fruiting and sends out young suckers from it roots which mature and continue the cycle of life and death.
