|Like a banana only redder.|
A Red banana is a type of banana found on a tree on the west side of the Ape Atoll. The only way to pick a red banana is to use a rope on the red banana tree while wearing a gorilla greegree. It is used for Freeing King Awowogei in the Recipe for Disaster quest to make a stuffed snake dish fit for a monkey king. It also heals 5 hitpoints if eaten.
After freeing King Awowogei, you can no longer pick the red bananas. When you eat a red banana, you get a message, "You eat the red banana. It's tastier than your average banana."
The red banana can be turned into a sliced red banana by using a knife on it. The sliced red banana is used in the Recipe for Disaster quest to stuff the snake used to free King Awowogei. It has no other purpose than to stuff the king's snake, or to use for food while fighting an enemy.
