Update - The Banana Museum is now in Mecca, CA, having been purchased on Ebay by Fred Garbutt and reopening back in November 2012. It now contains over 20,000 banana related objects.

According to the Guiness Book of World Records the Largest collection devoted to a single fruit is the Banana Museum in Hesperia, California. Formerly in Altadena California for 32 years, in 2006 the Recreation and Parks Department of the Hi Desert city of Hesperia moved it to the Harrison Exhibit Center. The museum's collection includes an eight foot banana couch and a petrified banana.
