Immigrants to land of opportunity included a small boy who tried to eat the banana peel on the unfamiliar treat.
My German-born uncle came to the land of opportunity during the wave of European immigrants in the late 1800s. Though just a small boy, he clearly remembered an incident that happened en route. Someone offered him a banana as a treat. It was the first he'd ever seen, and no one suggested that he peel it first. He tried eating it, banana peel and all, but it was more than his taste buds could handle. He was a sick boy. Uncle Alfred grew up, became owner of a successful bakery and married my Aunt Emma. He told her that he never wanted to see a banana – ever again.
