I like the first one and the way you worked it into the photo. We often get green bananas here, and it takes some time for them to ripen! The wait is worth it.

A humorous statement I have heard some elderly say is...."I never buy green bananas!" I am sure you get the point. Smiles.

I am sure bananas have a different taste for you than for us who receive them after weeks of refrigeration and travel.

there's a variety of green banana we find here that never ripens and it serves as a veg piece in curry and has great taste and they look like the ones in the photo..and of course nice lines :)

Ah, found the button to turn off Jingle Bells!
I am always so disappointed in the bananas we get here in the north. Always so, so green and you have to "harvest them" from the grocery store well before you need them, so they have time to ripen!
