A common misconception is that bananas come from banana trees, when in fact the banana is closely related to ginger and ornamental plants such as birds of paradise, amaranths and canna lilies. The banana plant is not a tree, but a perennial herb and grows up to 7½ metres, developing massive banana leaves that may extend 2.8 metres in the air. Edible bananas are technically berries and do not produce mature seeds. Their rhizomes, or roots, can be hundreds of years old.

Its trunk (called pseudostem) comprises a series of tightly overlapping leaf sheaths and is comprised of about 90% water. As such a banana plant can easily be blown over by moderately strong winds.
