This paper reports on the potassium content of five (5) varieties of Nigeria bananas. The potassium content was determined by flame spectrophotometer. We report that of the five varieties, none contained the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for potassium (4700 mg/day) and so potassium must be acquired from other sources to meet this daily allowance or one may have to eat about a thousand (1000) g of ba- nana a day to acquire the total RDA for potassium required per day.
