Something I found curious. The peel turns gray minutes after removing it from the banana.
As for what it tastes like, vanilla or apple I would guess that's pretty subjective. I don't eat many apples, but I like them tart and these bananas are much closer to vanilla than apple to me. Sweet without being overwhelming, firm but not hard even when very ripe. A real treat!
