Maybe they are cooking bananas, but it would hurt to put some ripe or semi ripe bananas and se what happens. Or you could just cook them. Either way let us know.

I buy reds like this at Kroger's sometimes and they usually need to ripen up a bit before they are edible. I usually wait to let the peel turn pretty dark and once the fruit yields a bit when you squeeze it, it's good to go. The one's I have eaten have a slight orange tint to the flesh. I've never considered them to be a cooking banana but that doesn't mean they aren't or couldn't be used that way.

Assuming that this has any bearing on your reds (which it may not have), our reds need to be softening slightly before they are good to eat - we also get a colour change to more sunset colours - often takes a long time when the fruit is picked very green.

Hey everyone I just bought some as well and was wondering what type they are. I called the company and she didn't know what type (no surprise there) but she said you eat them like a regular (dessert) banana and they are very sweet. She told me some people cook them but most eat them ripe.

I have mine in a bag with a hand of cavendish to speed up the ripening process.

I will post how they taste later it seems like they are taking a while to ripen.

My experience with the reds is that they are not cooking bananas. The fact that they are taking so long to ripen is an indication that they were picked very immature.

The pulp is excellent, when ripe (as mentioned in an earlier post) the bananas take on a sunset color with orange pulp.
