Botanically a banana is a herbaceous flowering plant. The edible fruit is botanically a berry, containing potassium, which is very healthy.

They are also considered a fruit.

A fruit is classified by having seeds. A banana does, in fact, have seeds. They are located in the center of the banana running lengthwise and appear as tiny brown dots..

2nd Answerer says:

Actually, it is both a fruit AND a herb. A banana (the yellow thing you peel and eat) is undoubtedly a fruit (containing the seeds of the plant) though since commercially-grown banana plants are sterile, the seeds are reduced to little specks. However, the banana plant, though it is called a 'banana-tree' in popular usage, is technically regarded as a herbaceous plant (or 'herb'), not a tree, because the stem does not contain true woody tissue.

Like tomatoes are actually fruit because they have seeds and grow above ground.

Although referred to as banana trees, they are not trees at all but a perennial herb. Its trunk is not a true one, but many leaves tightly wrapped around a single stem which emerges at the top as the fruit-bearing flower stalk.
