Regarding "tree", I'm just going with the conventional usage of tree and fruit.
Don't worry about it. Merriam-Webster and most dictionaries' 2nd definition of a tree as being a 'herb of arborescent form' and give ' banana tree' as a specific example. Also, some say bananas are berries, but berries are also FRUIT. Just look up the definition. So a Banana tree is a Fruit tree.
It's just some members of the forum go ballistic when trees and fruit are used to describe bananas.
