Featured Video - Banana
There are many varieties, but in Australia the most common are the Cavendish - the everyday banana, the Lady Finger - which has a sweet lemony flavour and the Plantain or 'green banana' - intended for cooking only. Experts say bananas strengthen the stomach lining and form a barrier against noxious juices, stimulate cell growth and prevent damage from harsh stomach acids, for example in ulcerative conditions.
