HOWTO disassemble a banana

iFixIt's awesome teardown site (which contains instructions for skinning and gutting many devices) has this fascinating HOWTO for disassembling a banana:

Step 4


Insert your thumbs into the split of the peel and pull the two sides apart.

Expose the top of the banana. It may be slightly squished from pulling on the stem, but this will not affect the flavor.

Step 5


Pull open the peel, starting from your original split, and opening it along the length of the banana.
