Stoopid Banana Question: Rotting from the Outside?

PayOrPlay | Jan 31, 2005 01:56 PM

So we bought a bunch of bananas (from TJ's, I think) and as each one ripened, it started to show a smallish blackish spot on the skin that got bigger and then the next day the skin, and the part of the banana under that part of the skin, was just gone--as if something had eaten it away.

The rest of the banana still looks fine, although we've been leery of eating it.

This has now happened a number of times; I can't be sure if all of the bananas were from the same store, so maybe it's something in our fruit bowl (and I have cleaned it) or in the air or in the bananas themselves--but we can't ever remember seeing bananas rot from the OUTSIDE before. Any suggestions?
