Hiya Re: I either have a flag on my

Zac, he told me he did try one but that it wasn't quite ripe tasting yet so he's waiting a bit longer.

Yeah it was just slightly acidic so I think they have to ripen more and maybe develop more spots on the fruit . I'll give the final taste report tomorrow for sure.

Hey - banana buddies,Bob & Anne, we tasted ours today & although it was yellow, I knew it was too firm to be fully ripened, but curiosity got the best of this cat LOL. I must say it tasted VERY good! Today, there are several more tyhat are yellow so I'll wait a few more days to ripen before we eat them.
I heard that if you separate some from a hand -individually, they ripen faster than the ones on the bunch...that way they won't all get ripe at same time.
WOOHOO isn't this fun!!!? Fresh Wisconsin/New Jersey home grown bananas!!!

Today some of them started turning from all yellow to a blackis on the peel and they turned out to be delicious too!!! Just have to figure when they're the optimum ripeness I guess! No doubt they'll be gone withing the week!

Awesome!

They're the sweetest when black, though sometimes the texture ain't so nice. My mom uses bananas that are black and mushy as butter for her banana bread... always turns out spectacular. For eating raw, I prefer them right when black/brown splotches turn up on the sides.

Enjoy those yellow goodies, lucky man!
