It doesnt have a meaning... it's a banana, Pop art was meant to shock and dismiss watercolours, with it's bright bold colours. Pop artists painted anything and everything that had vibrant colours, often using advertising as inspiration for their art. There wasnt particular reason for the banana, it isnt meant to represent anything other than a banana.
