Why would we consider organic vs conventional banana's - it is peeled before we consume the banana..??

The major difference between [organic and conventional bananas] is that conventional bananas are grown with synthetic fertilizers, insecticides, and herbicides to protect the crops from mold, bugs, and disease. On the other side, organic farmers use natural fertilizers such as manure and seaweed, insect predators and barriers to prevent pests, and they weed by hand or mulch in order to prevent weeds.

You may be thinking that all those chemicals used to grow conventional bananas are no big deal because you peel the fruit. But the chemicals are not just on the outside of the banana they leach into the soil that is used to grow the produce. So even if you peel your banana, it doesn't prevent you from ingesting small amounts of those chemicals.

Storage: natural ripening of the skin will indicate when it is ready to eat. A clean bright yellow means peak time to the banana's. We recommend store the banana's out of the fridge, which can darken the skin. Natural development of dark spots on the skin will tell us the banana has approximately 1-2 days left before overripening.

Overripe bananas are a great input in banana cake and muffins.

Storage recommendation: As our organic fruit and vegetables are natural and not treated with any preserving agent, we recommend that that they are kept in the fridge or cool temperatures to slow down any ripening if not being eaten once received.
