A Banana Explanation
Bananas are a tropical fruit, They are yellow coloured. When bananas are rotten they give off a special gas called ethylene(C2H4). A banana’s ethylene speeds up ripening of other fruit. Bananas grow on banana trees. People pick them and the bananas get put into a truck and sometimes get shipped and go to other countries. Then they go on a truck again and go in shops. Ripe bananas can be a nuisance because a whole banana that is rotten could spoil the darn lot in the shipment!!!
