The World's Blackest Banana

The other day I took Jeff's car to run a couple of errands. On the floor of the passenger side, I found this:

That is a banana. A very, very black banana.

Seriously, have you ever seen a banana so black in your entire life?
In addition to being uniformly as black as pitch, it was somewhat melted on one side. Ewww!

Jeff's explanation for this was that he grabbed the banana that morning, but left it in the car all day. It was warm here, about 80 degrees, which meant the car was probably more than 100 degrees. So apparently what we have here is a perfectly cooked banana.

All we need is a little rum and ice cream and we could have Bananas Foster!

I have NEVER seen anything like. In fact, I didn't even know that a banana could be that color.

They turn that color if you put them in the fridge also.

apparently the more 'mature' they are, the more protein they contain. i prefer to get my protein some other way! love your blog, here from angie's

Now we know who was responsible for the "over ripe" banana incident outside our lab.

I left a banana in an air conditioned building for a few months by accident, it didn't rot, it just totally desiccated. Looks like a wrinkly vanilla pod now. I found this site searching for whether anyone else had posted similar.
