Banana Central is the final upgrade of Path 1 for the Banana Farm in BTD6. It produces 5 larger crates of Banana worth $1200 each per round, as well as allowing all Banana Research Facility crates to become worth 25% more ($375). With the Valuable Bananas crosspath, the crates that spawn from the Banana Central are worth $1500 instead of $1200.
It costs $85,000 on Easy, $100,000 on Medium, $108,000 on Hard, and $120,000 on Impoppable.
Banana Central is an enlarged factory of bananas. The building appears more futuristic than the preceding Banana Research Facility upgrade (which appears more industrial), with features such as a glass dome that protects the banana repository. When Path 2 upgrades are bought, the bananas and the Banana Central logo turn green.
Banana Central is best suited for preparing for late-game runs, whereby maximizing income is of greatest importance. Its role is to maximize income for all collectable-based Banana Farms, particularly Banana Research Facilities, on screen. It is most powerful when paired with immense group of BRFs (Banana Research Facilities), which can exponentially pay off the immense expenses per BRF, due to how each BRF closes the gap between the expense of the Banana Central and its income production buff to all BRFs on screen. However, a large investment by other means may be required before being able to afford a massive Banana Central army, so other forms of income gain such as Monkey Bank spam may be required first before then. Overclock will increase the income of Banana Central by 100%, if it can remain in effect for the duration of the money generation. Due to the large cost of Banana Central, though, Overclock will wear out before it's refreshed. Using multiple Overclocks can be effective. Another strategy is to make sure that Overclock is in effect right before a 'short' round like 80, when all of the money is dumped at once.
Although the Bank Deposits MK allows the Monkey Bank/IMF Loan spam to become far more efficient at income production overall, Banana Central + Banana Research Facility spam is far less micro-intensive than the former option, because of how much less hand-eye coordination is required to scroll a finger/cursor over the screen repeatedly compared to excessive tapping on every individual Bank's bank account for every little unit of financial transaction.
Efficiency is how many rounds a Banana Farm takes to pay its price. This is calculated by taking the total cost of a certain Banana Farm divided by its total income per round.
For Banana Central, the prices and incomes of all Banana Research Facilities are considered.
The efficiency with Valuable Bananas assumes that all BRF farms are upgraded with Valuable Bananas. The efficiency for a 100% Overclocked Banana Central is one half of its listed efficiency.

- Before Version 2.0 (?), Banana Central did not change color when upgraded along Path 2.
