I have seen this a few times in breakfast buffets in hotels: pre-opened bananas (e.g. see infra).

Is that done in order to prevent clients from taking them for after breakfast, since an opened bananas will not last long?

  • I haven't seen it. But probably yes. – hippietrail Jun 25 '15 at 16:33
  • Maybe, they are helping clients by opening it for them. – edocetirwi Jun 25 '15 at 17:06

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about food, not about travel – Willeke Jun 25 '15 at 19:41

    @Willeke well it is about hotels. – Franck Dernoncourt Jun 25 '15 at 21:22

    Close? it's couldn't be more clearly about hotel procedures -- it's a great, if fun, question for the site! – Fattie Jun 26 '15 at 0:49

No, it's simply done to make it more convenient, more "elegant" if you will.

Just as they might, say, pull the stems from apples or polish apples.

Some joints actually start to pull the banana skin down for you, to make it even easier! :)

    I had no idea peeling a banana required so much effort :) – blackbird Jun 25 '15 at 18:19

    @Blackbird57 If you peel the banana from the bottom it is much easier ;) – Calchas Jun 25 '15 at 22:56
