The theme of The Jade Peony is that as Chinese Canadians, who are born in Canada, growing up in a bicultural environment,they are very confused about their identities whether they are Chinese or Canadian but they choose to be a ‘banana’ —in appearance they are Chinese but they are Canadian inside just like the banana which is yellow outside and white inside.
