Default Re: Aaron's Banana Tasting Sessions- Orinoco

As an added thought, when I have visitors at the nursery, we often have bananas to taste, and if there are, say, three varieties ripe, about 2/3 will pick the two that I think are the best, but about 1/3 will choose the third one over the other two.

Not saying that we shouldn't try and put out taste evaluations, but my anecdotal experience suggests that there are very noticeable differences in taste perceptions.

As another example, those same 2/3 of tasters will comment on a "mild apple cider like" flavor to Misi Luki. About 1/3 will not detect it at all. My wife is in the 1/3 group.

I have often found that the differences fall largely along sugar and salt lines: do you go for the glazed donut or the Fritos. I am a donut guy, my wife a Fritos girl.
