You can pick most bananas standing on the ground :scratch:

(And, as a nitpick from somebody who lives in a banana growing region, bananas don't grow on trees.)
The banana plant is the largest herbaceous flowering plant. All the above-ground parts of a banana plant grow from a structure usually called a "corm". Plants are normally tall and fairly sturdy, and are often mistaken for trees, but what appears to be a trunk is actually a "false stem" or pseudostem.

You learn something new about bananas every day. :shifty:
