Ripe bananas

These fruits are grown, transported, and available all year.

They are usually picked green and ripened near where they are sold.

Choose unbruised fruits with an even yellow color based on the variety (exotic ones may be pink or red). The sweetest ones will have slight brown freckles.

They may be stored for several days.

If the skins turn black with refrigeration, it will not harm the fruit inside.

Fresh, cooked, frozen

Fresh bananas are popular because they are an easy snack to carry without spoiling. Simply peel and eat.

Raw ones are also used in fresh fruit salads, fruit salsas, and many smoothies, as a topping for breakfast cereals, or simply served with cream and sugar.

A banana is the world's most popular fruit, so there are a wide variety of ways to cook them.

They can be fried, baked, steamed, boiled, stewed, curried.

They can be cooked into jams and dried into chips.

You can add them to pancakes, elegant desserts, pies, cakes, pastries, and banana nut breads, or top them with peanut butter.

You can freeze them into ice cream and chocolate covered bananas.

Easily digested

This fruit is easy to digest so it is used as an early baby food and is also good for most aging people because of the low calories in a banana.
