    Do you peel a banana from the top (stem end) or bottom?

    They are so much easier to peel if you peel from the bottom, like monkeys do!

    I've never even thought of starting at the bottom. I will have to try that.  The things you learn when you least expect it!

    I have always done it from the top - nick it first with a sharp knife if it's a bit tough, then peel down. I've never really thought about it, but I will have to try it the other way now, just to see!

    You can peel a banana from the bottom? I never knew that option existed.

    Always from the top. Just seems like the logical way to do it.

    I have never had a problem opening it from the top so never felt the need to try it any other way !

    I open it from the bottom. When trying to open it from the top, I would always have to use a knife, especially if the banana had time to get a bit soft of the stem was very tough. Then I learned that monkeys open bananas from the bottom. I tried it out and have been doing it that way since with no difficulty at all, which I very much enjoy.

    Yep. I do it like the monkeys. The stem end never opens right and ends up squishing banana everywhere. The other end is just a pinch and a peel (but you have to pick out that big nub of super bitter seeds first).

    I never even thought of peeling from the bottom.  That's truly an example of thinking outside the box!
