Recipe: ► Banana Bread, According to Wikipedia, banana is the tropical fruit most consumed in the world. Bananas grow in clusters of up to 100 bananas and each cluster can weights up to 50 kg. This is a fruit that turns yellow when ripe; it is sweet and rich in carbohydrates, potassium, and vitamin A and C. It is richer in calories than most fruits because of its high content of starch. There are many names all over the world that “banana” is known for, “platano”, banana, cambur, topocho o guineo. Where I come from, Barranquilla, Colombia is known as guineo!
