Will you eat browned bananas?

Ripeness

Whether you like bananas that are on the green side or kind of brown is a personal preference. A green and a bright yellow banana clearly taste different. But, what about the science behind it? A banana starts out green and becomes more and more yellow once it starts to ripen. Eventually, brown spots will start to appear and the banana will turn completely brown. A yellow banana is much sweeter than a green banana. This is because of the enzymes in it. Enzymes change the starches into sugar, making the banana sweeter.
