How do I know when bananas are ripe?

Knowing when the perfect banana is ripe can be difficult, but with a few simple ways of assessing a bananas ripeness you can soon become an expert.

To pick the perfect banana start by checking the color. Ideally, you are looking for a yellow banana with spots – especially brown ones.

If it still has green patches then its not quite ready yet and if there are completely black areas then its past its best.

You should also assess the texture; when its properly ripe it should have a mushy and springy feel.

Avoid picking a rock-hard one as this won’t ripen any further at home or will take too long to be edible.

Finally, once you’ve got your bunch home give them a gentle squeeze to ensure that they haven’t picked up any pesky bruises in transit.

Follow these steps and picking the right banana won’t be such mission impossible!
