Often times people peel bananas from the stem down. This causes them to bruise and get mushy after a few attempts. Monkeys do not peel bananas like this. They peel them from the top down.
Here are some steps and images to explain the process.
Step 1: Locating the Top!
Make sure to find the end of the banana opposite from the stem.
Step 2: Pinching the Top Off
This is where you will be starting to open up the banana without bruising or mashing it. Take your thumb nail and press it into the black part of the top. Use your pointer finger as a wall to pry it up.
Step 3: Peel It Back
Once you've gotten the top part off, start to peel it back towards the stem.
Step 4: Peel Back the Other Parts
Now you can peel back the rest of the parts of the banana peel
Step 5: Enjoy!
Now join your monkey brethren and eat your unbruised, un-mashed banana with joy!
