30 Bananas a Day!

I bought a box of bananas from a Saturday market (which is where I normally go).

Usually I buy them green and let them ripen over the week.

This week they didn't have any green ones, just yellow ones that are quite close to ripening. BUT - they've gone mouldy at the tip? I know when they're super ripe the tip gets a bit white, but this is actual mould. I peeled one of them and the banana itself smells a bit like mould... there's no sweet pleasant scent of banana.

What to do?

I'm considering just dealing with it and using them mixed in smoothies, but I obviously don't want to get sick. The banana on the inside looks fine - no bruises/spots. It's literally just its smell and slight off taste.

What do you guys think? Such a waste to throw them all out :(

ive had some bananas like this too, also they do ripen faster in the super hot weather and ferment easily :(

maybe some can be saved and used in smoothies or next time just remember to put as many as you can in the fridge to slow down ripening <3

if they are really really yucky prob best to chuck em :(  

aw  :(
but they aren't even spotted ripe yet! that's what I don't understand, so annoying haha

How long did you have them for before they moulded? Maybe you can return them. I would need a picture to judge if they are still worth eating.

Photos above...

I had them for one day ! (photos from day 2)
I bought them from a market that I can only go to on Saturdays, meaning returning them is probably not an option :(

they look fine to me just cut an inch or 2 from where the stem is mouldy and you should be fine

I sprayed the ends wih vinegar to slow the growth, and I plan on freezing them up once they ripen properly

Taste a little bit if you are going to use them in smoothies.

The bananas I buy taste off, I look at the base to check if they're mouldy and don't buy if they are. Are there mouldy parts in your house?

I've had problems with mouldy white figs, pineapples. Banana etc- I've even bought them like that by mistake and retailer did refund

They didn't appear to be mouldy when I bought them, and no we don't usually have a problem with mould in the house!
I've attached photos as reference to the post above

I would eat 'em.

I tried a couple that are spotted and they taste fine now that they've ripened. Sprayed the stems with vinegar and now I'm set to just feast away ;)

NO problems Lavcyn, just cut the top, its normal, fungi is there to decompose dead mater, just like cancer,

all tumor are white in the middle, its the fungi.

By the way most of the time insects propagate fungi, insects born in soil, fungi stick to them, spread on flowers,

flowers become a fruit,voilà.
