Is there such a thing as a "bad" banana; or to put it another way, is there such a thing as a "really good" banana?

Isn't just about every banana about equally good (or bad) as every other banana?

If you like your banana a bit raw (or "crunchy" if you will), then you eat them when they're still greenish-yellow, or just pale green.

If you like your banana a bit softer or more ripe, then you eat them when their yellow, or perhaps even when they're a bit brown.

Aside from that variation -- which is more a function of time than quality per se -- aren't all bananas just about as good as any other banana?

Can we say the same thing about any other fruit? Not apples, oranges, berries (any kind), peaches, pears, etc.

Am I missing something?
