Banana bend

EC Commission Regulation No 2257/94: all bananas must be “free of abnormal curvature” and at least 14 cm in length.

In 2008 while I was in the UK, it and other EU nations voted out rules about the curves of cucumbers and bends of bananas.

Such rules would have denied my enjoyment in buying my weekly bananas at Dandenong Market.

Admittedly, extreme curvature is inconvenient for storage in my banana house.
