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.
- Hold the banana upside down
First, hold the banana with the stem end facing downward.
- 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.
- 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.
