Two days later, the apple has puffed itself into mush but the banana is barely more yellow than when I picked it. I take a drive to a farm store (which is now open because the Memorial Day weekend is over) and buy lots of apple bananas. We also decide to try another variety which should be ripe on our last day.
As we are getting ready to leave, all that remain are the unknown other variety of banana and the test banana I picked. We try the unknown variety and it is rather like bananas at home. Not too exciting. I open our yellow-green banana and we split it. Yum! Ripe just in time. Someone else will have to enjoy the rest of them.
