Fact about bananas. They are a slightly radioactive fruit. They contain small amount of the isotope potassium-40.

Same here. The OP is right though, I've seen so many people throw away banans with black spots, even though they're incredibly sweet. I sometimes even look for those.
I prefer the yellow ones than the green. Green (plantain) is very common in my area. Although the one we usually boiled are the local plantains. But I do agree that's the peak of their ripeness but not palatable to me.

Do you play with your food? Quirky Cookery

Not necessarily Jesse. Black does not always mean they are mushy inside. I was also surprised to find that if they dry out and shrivel they can be firm inside. Do an experiment sometime. Also did you know you can use bananas to help speed up ripening of other fruits including tomatoes in a cupboard.
I will eat them up to the point where they are spotted black. For them to be completely black means they're very mushy on the inside. I think those are great for banana bread or muffins, but not for eating straight out of the peel.

I agree with you that they are dry and starchy. I find they can be difficult to swallow.
I prefer to eat mine when they have some black spots on the peel. I have tried eating them whilst the peel is green before and have never liked the way they tastes or felt when I was eating them. I always getting a weird taste in my mouth when eating them with the green peel and after eating then I get a weird dry kind of feeling in the mouth, feels like I really need to drink but when I do it doesn't make a difference.
