|The messy banana tree|
Not everyone recognizes the tree, so here it is.
As you can see it is not a nice tree and to be honest it is basically not a tree.
The stem is like an onion, it has a lot of soft layers, which can be peeled off. The big leaves look very messy, but are very useful for all kind of purposes in the kitchen as to pack food for cooking or to use as a table sheet.
