Food for thought | intelligent design

A professor of design once explained to me that bananas are the most sophisticatedly designed fruit, for the following 3 reasons:
1) knob at the top and directional fibers for maximum peeling ease
2) skin acts as a glove so hands never need to touch the fruit
3) no seeds
It’s a design that screams “eat me!!”

Have a nice weekend.
