    I like my bananas on the green side. Fully yellow makes them too sweet for me.

    Looks Yum. As a Vegetarian, it is quite a regular staple food when I am traveling out of Country. I like in all colors and forms. Thanks for sharing

    How red is different from yellow one in terms of taste?

    I always thought they were pretty much the same, but the aroma of some gives the impression that they are actually sweeter. The red ones may be white, orange or even pinkish inside. I believe the amount of beta carotene causes this. I even had a variegated one (even the 'fingers' were variegated), but it tasted pretty much the same. The biggest difference I noted was the texture - some were quite creamy, and by comparison the typical store-bought ones appear almost 'mealy' and dry.

    Here is a variegated one.

    Even some banana blooms are attractive. Here are blooms from two 'Double Mahoi' bananas I had previously.
