In 1633 Mr. Thomas Johnson, a botanist, introduced the Banana to London, England. He ran an Apothecary Shoppe, featuring plants and herbs with healthful virtues. He authored and co-authored many books of longterm interest. Mr. Johnson is the “Father of British Field Botany”.
Still, he did not find those Bananas in a British field, that’s certain. The popular guess is they came from Bermuda.
You may also wonder how long it took for the public to see the potential humor in Banana peels. Not long, We imagine.
