National Banana Day

National Banana Day takes place on the third Wednesday in April — April 19 this year — and we are preparing to have an amazing day doing the best thing with bananas … eating them! Can you believe that bananas are one of the oldest cultivated fruits in the world? Bananas’ popularity spans the world and there are thousands of banana varieties. Bananas are beneficial and versatile and can be used in puddings, muffins, pies, sandwiches, bread, cakes, and more.

Bananas are popular globally, irrespective of the variety, and they get an impressively huge consumption all around the world. Bananas are edible berry fruits that grow in fingerlike clusters, hanging down from a banana tree. Undoubtedly, the banana fruit is a favorite of many folks. We love bananas too! Their softness and unmatched sweetness make them special, coupled with the numerous health benefits they possess. Bananas are good sources of vitamins, carbohydrates, amino acids, and fats.

Bananas can be eaten as a meal when peeled, and can also be included in other forms of food, such as banana bread, pies, chips, cakes, muffins, or smoothies. Annually, more than one hundred billion bananas are produced and circulated across the world.

The exact history of National Banana Day cannot be traced to a particular year. Bananas were first brought westward from India and other Asian countries by Arab traders around 327 B.C. The fruit spread through Africa and was eventually carried to the New World by explorers and missionaries. The large-scale bananas began in 1834 when they gained popularity and demand. However, 1865 is remarkably noted to be the year bananas gained popularity on American shores. The first company that dealt with banana importation into America was the Boston Fruit Company founded by Lorenzo Dow Baker.
