Additionally, if the production quantities are carefully studied, the most popular fruit in the world is bananas. In fact, in 2018, over 115.74 million metric tons of bananas were produced. In order to properly cultivate the banana plant, a warm and humid climate is required. Moreover, the banana plant grows the best in an environment where the soil is rich, dark and fertile.

The most popular banana types, grown all over the world, are identified as Cavendish, Lady Fingers and Plantains. Additionally, a different kind of banana that is known worldwide is the cooking banana. Since they contain a high amount of starch, they are drier in nature. Furthermore, plantains are a staple food in many tropical countries.  Hence, bananas are a type of fruit that is enjoyed worldwide.
