oddly colored bananas

brendastarlet | Nov 6, 2007 09:35 AM

I've been having trouble with bananas that don't ripen properly. I buy them green, but they never turn bright yellow. They go kind of a pale yellow with brownish streaks, and never actually get the kind of brown spots that bananas get when they go from yellow to brown.
This has happened several times lately (twice with bananas bought at Trader Joe's.)

I wonder if the bananas got a shot of frost somehow during transit that keeps them from ripening. Any thoughts?
