Bananas (mai’a) teach us patience as they grow and ripen slowly which, when dealing with an impatient person, one can only say “Brah, bananas do not fruit in a single day.”

I’ve read the Hawaiian legend which tells that a brother of Pele brought the banana to Hawaii from Tahiti. It is believed to be bad luck to dream of bananas, to meet someone who carries them, or to bring them on a fishing trip. Some similes speak of a person’s skin being like a ripe banana or of a person being as beautiful as a young banana leaf.
