Abstract

The word banana is believed to be originated from West Africa, possibly from the Wolof word banana, and passed into English via Spanish or Portuguese. Banana is a fruit which is botanically a berry and produced by largest herbaceous flowering plants in the genus Musa. The fruits grow in clusters hanging from the top of the plant.
