Sani’s banana trick

You’ll fool everybody with the banana trick: You peel the whole banana and it’s already cut into pieces inside. Sani will show you how.

You will need

  • 1 banana
  • 1 thin needle
  • A strong piece of thread approx. 30 cm long
  • 1 slice of lemon

Step 1

Insert the needle into the banana. Run the needle forward a little under the skin. Leave a tail of thread at least 10 cm long.

Step 2

Pull the needle out and push it back into the hole it just came out of. Again, move the needl horizontally under the skin.

Step 3

Continue around the circumference of the banana until you reach the first hole again – you’ll need about 4 to 6 "stitches".

Step 4

At the same time, pull both ends of the thread firmly in a downwards motion cutting the banana into two halves.

Sani’s tip: Prepare the trick right before you plan to perform it otherwise the puncture holes will go brown. Add a little lemon juice using a cotton bud to the holes to stop them from going brown.
