This probably sounds trivial, but I have recently been on a lucky streak with bananas. I’m pretty particular about my bananas, and it’s been several months since I’ve bitten into one I didn’t like. Prior to this streak, my banana selection and enjoyment has been pretty hit or miss for the last several years.
As it turns out, perhaps it’s not a lucky streak at all. It may just be because I’ve been purchasing a majority of my bananas at Target. It seems they’ve got some sort of banana ripening process perfected over there.
I’m glad I get all these interesting press release e-mails that have nothing to do with anything I normally blog about, or I would never have known there was such a thing.
Personally, I prefer my bananas around stage 5, but I find they quickly progress from 4 to 7 at my house, which means I’ve got a very limited window in which to consume the whole bunch.
How about you? Do you have any banana stage preferences? Perhaps we could form some kind of banana-trading support group — you give me your stage 5s in return for my stage 7s? =)
