I just love green bananas, they are the best,

Well, I don't think that I've ever tried a green banana, Yorkshire. Ours usually end up being over-ripe, and get turned into banana loaf bread.

Where s the chimps lol a banana with green is good for the heart but once all green goes they are bad they turn to sugar.

Yes I find it interesting how food can alter to harm or do good.

You're right, Yorkshire! Sorry, but I thought "Yuk"! :-))

sorry David, only way I eat them, Lol

Just had to try, though, out of curiosity. Is this because of their potassium content?

3 Apr, 2011

 

no I just can't eat ripe or yellow bananas

Always heard that bananas were potassium rich and like avocadoes, should be eaten very ripe..(spoiled in my opinion) black almost! Geeesh! don't know which is more revolting green or black!

The only thing I like Green & Black is their organic chocolate - haha!! :-))

That sounds VERY interesting! : - )~ drool.....

Green & Blacks is a company which makes organic chocolates and choc bars - very high % cacao, lol!! X

Those are some nice bananas. I have a bunch of bananas in my front and back yards about this size, and they're almost ready to be cut. There's nothing like home-grown bananas.

Am envious that you can "grow your own", Delonix. :-)

David:

We don't think of it as being a big deal to grow our own bananas here in San Diego, many people do. I've been growing my own bananas for many years. :>)

oh here I go again...avocadoes and bananas...I'm envious too, David! I know the bananas we buy are green when they leave the plantation but does that make a significant difference in taste, D1? I know that home grown tomatoes are beyond compare in flavour...guess it's the same for bananas???

Lori:

Yes, it does make quite a difference. The whole banana stalk is cut when a few bananas start turning very light yellow. Although, I've seen people leave the bananas on the stalk and pick them as they ripen. The problem with this method is the bananas ripen very quickly (so you have to eat a whole lot of bananas a day. lol).

I noticed in the background this posted pic, there's a Mostera deliciosa (Split-leaf-Philodendron), it has really good pineable-tasting fruit, also. My large Split-leaf-Philodendron in my backyeard has flowers and fruit on it right now, too.
