I like mine firm, not mushy at all, nice and yellow. A few black spots here and there, but not REALLY black. And not green, either.

I like them yellow, but I'd rather eat them a touch green than a touch brown or black. As soon as they go brown, they're banana bread/muffin/waffle fodder.

depends on what I'm doing with them! In a bread or a smoothy, mushy and black. If I'm just eating it straight up, nice and yellow. The green ones taste nasty.

I like mine yellow with a few brown speckles. They're sweeter that way. I love them in a toasted sandwich with peanut butter.



My mom likes green bananas. My bird likes them when they're so brown they're almost rotten. Apparently that makes it easier to regurgitate so he can enjoy it a second time.

I thought you were referring to banana eating method, so let me share my odd obsessive-compulsive way of eating bananas...



First, I break off one third of the banana. Then I take that third and break it into thirds lengthwise (for those who don't know, with a little sqeeze bananas naturally break into thrids lengthwise). Then I eat each piece one at a time. I repeat with the other 2 thirds. Oh, this method brings me such joy!



Oh, and I like them yellow--ripe but not too ripe.

I prefer them nice and yellow. Although I will eat them when they have a few brown spots on them (has anyone else noticed that the skin seems to get thinner the more ripe/rotted they become?)



Slightly off topic: someone once prepared boiled green bananas for me (along with some beans and fish. Strangely they were all the same consistancy. It was before I went veggie.) It wasn't too impressive, although I was told that the person making them didn't really know what they were doing if I didn't jump up and down with excitement.

I like mine when they have just turned yellow or when they are partially yellow and partially green. I don't like them when they're sweet (unless they're in baked goods).

I like them solid yellow usually. I won't touch it if it has green still. Nor will I touch a banana that is 75% brown, for they have a starchy texture.

I had no idea they break into thirds lengthwise! Now I'm intrigued. I must go try this... *runs off to find a nice yellow banana in which to separate*

I like them a bit green, but not fully green.



I like them ripe for smoothies, breads, etc.

i don't really like bananas plain, but they've gotten less gross over the years. i only eat them if they're almost perfectly yellow.

I don't like them green, and I don't like them spotty!! I'll take a few spots, but not too many. I either bake the spotty ones into things (like banana bread, or as an egg replacer) or I cut them up and freeze them for later baking and smoothie use.

I put "the greener the better" but that's obviously strongly worded. I like mine with a hint of green, but not green.

I won't eat a banana if it has black spots. Too sweet. So I voted green. Not totally green of course - then I could as well bite in a raw potato ew

I usually let them get black though as I primarily use them for banana breads and muffins so the riper the better!

Yellow (not pale yellow either..that normally means that it tastes bad for some reason) with several brown spots, but not sploches. Not black. Not dark brown. Not a ton of brown spots. And definitely not when it's any shade of green.



I'm very particular.

My friend told me about the aforementioned sectioning about a month ago! It was SO exciting...it makes me so very happy! I like my bananas just past the green point--very firm. Bananas are yummy!!

Yeah, the peels seem to get more fibrous too.



I like mine slightly browned speckled and with peanut butter or on Cheerios. Yummy.
