Nowadays this tropical fruit is an everyday household ingredient but historically it was perceived as an exotic rarity. Even just after World War II rationing, it was considered to be a rare treat.

Bananas probably originated in Southeast Asia, and from there to the Middle East and then on to Africa.  From there, Spanish and Portuguese colonists took them to the Americas.

Bananas are highly nutritious and a convenient, portable snack.
