what's the problem with him doing that , I don't go to reddit so would never have seen this otherwise

It could be due to selective breeding by cultivation, seeing as how we've humans have been doing the same with bananas for thousands of years, which has made them seedless and adapt to fit the human palm, (Fittingly, bananas could potentially be considered extinct, most bananas we eat today are just cloned seeds). Science is fun.

is that not unripe pomegranate ?

Err, actually, not so sure about them being completely cloned, due to organic bananas, but the selective breeding is pretty true.
Anyone want to fill me up on the parentheses part?

>take cutting from banana tree that grows bananas without seeds
>cultivate that cutting
>you now have another banana tree with exactly the same genes as the one you took the cutting from

Still counts as organic as all this can is done without chemicals or splicing or implantation as would be required with animal cloning.

most (not sure of all) bananas are the product of thousands of years of selective breeding to the point now where they are propagated from cuttings rather than sexual reproduction and seeding, so that there are only a limited number of strains of bananas and all examples of any particular strain are clones in the sense that they are parts of the parent plant rather than descendants of it, not that they are artificially created in a lab or something.

Fruits evolved to be yummy because it encouraged animals to eat the fruit then **** the seeds somewhere else, thus spreading the plant. IDK about sliced oranges specfically, but it could be related...

I love when just straight text makes it to the front page. That fact alone makes it funnier (for me at least).

inb4 "what about gay text you homophobe". Sorry for my intolerance
