In an effort to produce sweeter produce a company in Japan has been playing Mozart to its bananas.
They didn't stop there either, a whole range of fruit and vegetables have been subjected to various forms of music in order to improve their taste. Mozart's String Quartet 17 and Piano Concerto 5 in D major however seems to work the best.
Now here's a story with a-peel: A Japanese fruit company has been playing Mozart to its ripening bananas, claiming it produces a sweeter product. And that's not all - the paper says a wide variety of food and beverages in Japan have been enjoying exposure to classical music, including soy sauce, udon noodles, miso and even sake, the Japan Times said.

I believe it's the water inside the fruits that is affected by music. So if the water tastes good, so must be the bananas. The video series link below is related. (I forgot in what part is the music.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQfOyz4rofs Edit: Death Metal is a big NO NO!
