Half-Banana has decent stats for a plant that costs 1 sun. You can give them stat boosts with your Mega-Grow cards, but otherwise, just treat them as temporary attackers and defenders. The downside to Half-Banana is that it has no synergy, aside from being Conjurable by Banana Peel. This means that it is less effective on her own than Morning Glory, which has the same stats, a more reliable ability, and better tribe synergy.
Its ability, while it does give a head start to your bananas, is very situational and has limited use. Aside from the fact that there are very few banana cards in the game and the boost is minuscule, the main issue is about gathering enough bananas in your hand for its ability to be worthwile. The two main banana suppliers, Banana Split and Banana Launcher, do not help with this issue as Banana Split makes Half-Bananas which don't count, while Banana Launcher only adds Banana Bombs, which are tricks and are thus unaffected by its ability. Therefore, make sure to have lots of card draw and many banana plant cards to put this plant to good use. Captain Combustible and Green Shadow are the best heroes to use this, as they have the most banana plants out of all heroes.
Due to its low stats, Half-Banana should not give you much trouble alone. Almost any zombie should be able to destroy it, while Weed Spray and The Chickening are great at handling Half-Bananas made from Banana Split. Its ability is weak, but may give you a hard time once your opponent starts playing some more bananas, so keep that in mind.
