why do bananas spell?

We get free fruit at work and I have noticed the bananas have a funny smell. I have never noticed it before. I know some people can smell, I thought they were joking

    Bananas smell of bananas.

    Whether they can spell or not is a matter of conjecture image

  • As Terry Practhett says in his Discworld books, there are some words that just wont stop formingimage Anyway back to the original question, 'Why do Bana... this fruit stink!'image

    Bananas give off ethylene gas which is why we use them to ripen over fruits and why they shouldn't be kept near cut flowers

    Dont know why they should smell horrid. Chop the skins up and put them round your rose bushes, its good for them.

  • Two brilliant pieces of info there from Fleurisa and ginagibbs. Gina is your doggy a King Charles Spaniel? He/She looks lovely.
