From the delectable Banana milkshake to the unsightly Banana hammock, Bananas have been the inspiration for so many ground-breaking inventions. But all of them pale into insignificance when you compare them to the mighty Banana Umbrella.
Looking just like the real thing, these curvaceous pieces of folding fruit are the perfect potassium-rich parasols to shield yourself from nature's watery wrath.
Fresh from the plantation and sheathed inside a thick plastic peel to prevent bruising and (banana) splits, take your pick between ripe (Yellow) and un-ripe (Green) varieties – or just buy a bunch.
Un-ripened umbrellas will not ripen over time
Both varieties have yellow canopies
Shelter from the storm beneath this potassium-rich parasol
Beautiful curvaceous shape
Adorned with an "Umbanana" sticker
Comes packaged in a banana patterned box
Well-made canopy, unlikely to get a banana split
Ripe (Yellow) and Unripe (Green) versions available
Over-ripened soft brown variant coming soon (maybe)
