It seems obvious to open a banana by the stem, but the fact is, doing so often results in a sort of thumb-wrestle with the fruit and a stem that may or may not break off easily. If you turn the banana around, though, and give a gentle squeeze to the other end, the peel should split right open. Proceed as usual and be thankful to monkeys for teaching us this genius maneuver.
