জটিল প্রশ্ন...নাজিয়ারে জিজ্ঞেসা করতে হবে সে এই বায়ো ফোরামের মডু হয়া সময় নষ্ট করতে চায় কিনা...

The answer is indeed 'yes' but what do you mean by abnormal fruits?

I think that cancer is very different from mutation/genetic disorder. Twin banana is AFAIK some sort of genetic disorder. (I might be wrong...I am not biology guy you know:) )

You are partially correct. Twin banana is genetic disorder or you can just call variation. But cancer is a consequence of mutation.

Btw, Rakeen in case of cancer the extreme division would not result into another banana you know; it would be merely a lump of banana-like tissue.

I was just percepting. May be it's not twin banana, but It can be other thing. Like in main branch you'll sometimes c there's a big 'pimple !' on it. May b it's bcoz that branch has cancer. Or may be cancer has some other effect.
