Do the fresh-cut leaves really smell like bananas?!
Okay, I've never grown a banana plant & I recently started working in a nursery/garden center. The greenhouses have banana plants, though I don't know what kind.
One of my coworkers was giving a tour to pre-school kids & brought them around to the tropicals greenhouse where I was working on a wholesale order.
She took a leaf off one of the plants & told them to smell it & asked them what it smelled like. They said "Bananas!" & she said "That's right!".
Was she just fooling with them, or do fresh-cut banana plant leaves smell like bananas?
