Bananas are better than oranges
They are easy to peel, great source of B6, cheap...

oranges are messy, you get that white crap on the edges after peeling that you have to skin off with your fingernails, cost more...

1. Oranges keep better
Especially in a backpack out on a hike. It also quenches your thirst and keeps you from getting the scurvy... arrrrrrr matey.

4. I get cravings for both.
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 10:24 AM by woo me with science
I cannot imagine a world with just one or the other.

But for the purposes of this poll, I choose oranges, which came first. :)

6. bananas do better in my smoothies and gives me potassium. oranges,

7. Just eat Kiwis
More vitamin c than oranges, more potassium than bananas, juicy enough to get rid of your thirst, and you can eat them with the skin still on except for that little knobby part on one end.

Kiwis own oranges and bananas.

9. Try Clementines
They're small oranges, usually from Spain or Morrocco, and available this time of year. They're easy to peel, have no seeds, and are delicious.

21. I love Clementines! Bananas are ok, but they are a little heavy
for me. I prefer less filling fruit.

32. Pears are SOOO off-topic! ALERT!
Bananas are my favorite fruit in that they are usually the only fruit I eat now and then. Great for days you didn't bother with breakfast.

We all know you are really talking about something else.
