How Do You Peel a Banana?

There are two ways to peel a banana, either from the stem or from the bottom. Peeling a banana from the bottom is easier and doesn't squish the fruit. Simply squeeze the bottom tip of the banana until it opens, and then strip away the peel.

  1. Hold the banana upside down

    First, hold the banana with the stem end facing downward.

  2. Pinch the banana

    Pinch the tip of the banana between two fingers. When you pinch it hard enough, the skin of the banana splits into two sections.

  3. Peel off the skin

    Peel the skin toward the stem end. If you like, you can use the stem to hold the banana while you eat it.
