This thread is to avoid hijacking this thread.
When is it decided how many bananas are in a bunch? Is it when they are picked, or are the entire “tiers”* picked, and broken down later on? And is it intentional that by the time they get to the supermarket, all different sizes are available? I’ve never seen only large bunches or only small, i.e. before the vultures swoop down and break them apart.
*And what are these “tiers” called?
