One of my favorite fruits is the banana! They are full of potassium, taste great, and are quite filling as well! What a great snack! Yes...unless you are trying to lost weight! Bananas can be extremely high in sugar. As the banana ripens, brown spots generally develop as it moves through the ripening stage. The sugar content in the banana increases from almost zero to about 80 percent as the banana ripens. The more brown spots the banana has, the more sugar the banana contains, and the sweeter it becomes. Brown spots on a banana generally do not indicate disease. Bananas with spots should be safe to eat. Think twice when grabbing a banana as a snack!
