Banana is a 2015 British television series created by Russell T Davies and aired on E4. The sister series to Channel 4's Cucumber and the 4oD documentary series TofuBanana is a series focusing on LGBT youth in Manchester, on the periphery of the Cucumbernarrative. Unlike Cucumber, which is a self-contained serial following the story of one gay man, Banana is an anthology series focusing on the wider LGBT spectrum. CucumberBanana, and Tofu are all named after the same scale of erection hardness, with Bananasymbolising the middle of the scale from the flaccid Tofu to the fully erect Cucumber.
