I love bananas!
Why is it that bananas bruise easily?
Just like strawberries, they quickly fall prey to rotting.
I bought a bundle of Cavendish bananas.
They looked well and in good shape.
A day after my daughter asked, ”what happened to the bananas?”
Puzzled I took a look and saw that portions had gone bad.
“Oh, the stems look like they have a disease.”
I was fooled!
On the outside they look firm and happy.
I couldn’t tell that the stems were already bruised.
“Not to worry, I’ll cut off the stems so the rest don’t get sick.”
I have apples sitting in the fridge for weeks now and not a sign of decay.
They get bumped and moved around and still they remain intact.
I have to be careful when storing bananas in the fridge.
They don’t do too well in artificial cold.
They end up turning black even though they’re still good to eat.
Bananas are deceiving.
When you think they’re well, they are actually not.
They are clever!
Disguised in black on the outside but white and well on the inside.
Strawberries can never fool anyone.
Once they’re bruised, they turn pale and limp.
No matter how pretty its tops with leaves, a bruise in its body limps them.
It’s going to be a happy Friday.
I’m booked for coffee with my daughters.
Forget about spoiled bananas!
