You got it!!

You simply follow the instructions of the OP:

Remove "SIX LETTERS" from the following seq...

And you are left with

BANANAS!

I put this puzzle on PowerPoint in my trainings to make participants think outside the box and use a bit of their right brain...

Yep. I'm a sucker and an inside-the-box thinker. First thing I did was figure out that it must be an 11-letter word and totally restricted myself to looking for big words. Even though it slapped me in the face, I like it. Good one.
