A much better idea. Bananas are ingeniously packaged. I heard a lecture once
from an industrial designer who extolled the "design" of the banana peel: it
protects the product, segments it into individual portions, has its own
built-in opening device, can be used to keep ones hand clean while consuming
the product, and also - most ingenious of all, he claimed - it changes color
to reflect the changing quality of the product over time.
