To all Banana Eaters or Banana growers or Banana Scientists - peeps on TNS






Why do Bananas go Black when they are over ripe - is it because of the chemicals in the bananas
which make some or all of the vegetables and fruit ripen too fast or go rotten,


 

Because we can eat the green (under ripe) and yellow Bananas with no worries, that's raw or cooked?

I do know that when I buy bananas not to put them in the fruit bowl or in the
fridge as they'll make everything go off.

Does anyone have any ideas?
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

bananas that are like that can be peeled (dipped in chocolate if you like) and then frozen for a yummy treat.

I love green bananas and frozen bananas...but I can't stand them once they're yellow or any more ripe.
