Did you know that when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, one couldn’t find a single banana in West German supermarkets for months? In communist East Germany bananas were just not available, so the people living behind the wall simply could not get enough of the tasty, nutritious fruit.
Bananas are rich in vitamins B6, B12, magnesium and potassium. Some people like them more as their peels turn darker, because the darker the peel is, the higher the level of sugar in the banana.
However, banana peels are so much more than just an indicator of how sweet the fruit is.
