    Bananas

    I eat a lot of bananas. My pigs go absolutely berserk when they smell me eating it. I tend to give them a tiny tiny bite sized chunk. It is okay to do this every day like I usually do? Aside from bananas, they don't ever get fruit.

    Very small bits. Bananas have LOTS of sugar, and can upset a pig's GI tract.

    I wouldn't give them the peels. They're what absorb any pesticides applied to the trees. Give them the inner part of the banana if you give any of it at all.

    They are organic. I only feed my pigs organic veggies and fruits.
