hand
 n.— «There may be fewer bananas around this year, following Cyclone Larry in Far North Queensland, but that doesn’t mean the quality of the fruit has dropped. That’s the consensus after the Ekka, when many “hands” (what shoppers usually refer to as a “bunch”) of bananas were still sent in for display and judging.» —“A hand of prize-winning bananas” by Kelly Higgins-Devine 612 ABC (Brisbane, Australia) Aug. 21, 2006.
