I spent some time in my wood working shop for doing this project. Banana is a tropical fruit and very common in each household. They cannot be refrigerated. Therefore it is important to keep them fresh and increase their shelf life. For this they should be kept hanging to facilitate air circulation. If not stored properly the skin turns black and the fruit loses its texture. I made this banana hanger out of pine as a decorative and useful piece on my dining table. We have several varieties of banana and the one shown in the picture is a small variety with a very thin yellow skin. It is very tasty and costs about 1$ for a dozen. After peeling the skin goes as an organic fertilizer in my terrace garden. The last picture is of a variety most common and of a bigger size with a thicker skin costing the same as above.
