Dear Raw Vegans,
I recently bought some ripe conventional bananas (Dole label) because I ran out of my usual organic ones (Dole label), and notice the foul smell inside the core of them. I never noticed this before, but I saw something black in the middle of the banana as I bite into one of them and took a sniff and spit it back out, and I decided to invsestigate, and the others one who didn't turn back inside the core of the banana smelled a little foul as well. I have never noticed this before. And the bananas were not overly ripe, as it just right. I wind up throw out like 30lbs of bananas caused they all smell bad to me (luckily I bought the whole box for only $5)
Could this be because its non organic? I also went to the store and took a sniff of the organic ones (Dole label) and they smelled weird as well. Can somebody please tell me are they safe to eat? I just read about Dole after these events and found out they are not very ethical in the way they grow conventional bananas, I am not sure about their organic ones. So I just went out and bought a bunch of bananas from the GROW label tonight.
Please provide your input, thank you!
