(Scroll down for video) A man revealed that his strange business idea is earning him thousands of dollars.

Wilson Davonte Plano, Texas, launched his company and website named Bananas Gone Wild.

Davonte creates custom bananas for $10 each, and brings them to life in his apartment, using a variety of glitter, fake beards and other resources.

The first thought of the idea came to him while working at a hospital, where he became known to draw faces on bananas.

Davonte says some workers even mocked his hobby, but he is now having the last laugh after earning more than $100,000.

Davonte offers customers the option to build their own banana, by selecting decorations themselves. For $10.00, they get to add a text of their choice along with shapes, fonts and clip art.

Davonte makes up to 75 bananas a day. When he completes a banana, he puts it in plastic wrap and takes it to the post office, sending it out to the customer.
