There is now a banana with a skin you can eat. Most people would never do this. Banana farmers in Japan made a way of growing bananas with a peel we can eat. The new way is called the "freeze-thaw awakening". Farmers keep their banana trees at a freezing temperature of -60°C. They then put the trees in 27ºC temperatures. The change in temperature makes the tree grow very quickly. This makes the skin thin and soft enough to eat.
The new banana is called the "Mongee". Farmers sell it in bunches of 10 bananas. They are not cheap. One banana costs six dollars. Farmers don't grow many, so the price is high. They will grow more, so the price will fall. Japan imports about 99% of its bananas. The Mongee could mean Japanese people will eat more bananas that are grown in Japan. The Mongee banana skin is sweet. It has nutrients like vitamin B6 and magnesium.
