Never Ripe

The quality of these bananas is getting poorer by the week. They arrive quite unripe, yet turn black before they have ripened properly. I'm no grower of these, but I suggest they are getting picked too soon. Will stop buying them now as fed up of them ending up in the bin!

Not the best

Used to be excellent, but now they have been arriving too green and inedible for about a week. After a couple of weeks the skins still haven't ripened properly and the quality is not as they used to be. Disappointing.

green bananas no good

I agree with other comments. Just recently the bananas being delivered are green and hard, take over a week to ripen, and are therefore useless for the week I've ordered them for. I have to go out and get more from elsewhere. Disappointing that there's nowhere in the order that you can leave a picking suggestion - like Tesco - so that, if they are unripe, substitute or don't send.

ok up until three weeks ago...

I am another who had been regularly buying these bananas but has now stopped due to them all being green. 2 weeks I have been waiting for the last lot to ripen and they are still hard and green. Up until then there was the odd slightly green batch but otherwise ripe and lovely. Some unhappy children here. Hope they get this issue sorted.

Coconut, Mango and Banana Smoothies

This is a great dairy free smoothie; I am obsessed by natural coconut juice. It is great for rehydrating; it’s low calorie and has a touch of sweetness. Here I have blitzed it with banana and mango for a sunshine breakfast. It’s super quick to make and will go towards your 5 a day. By Sophie Michell

This is a lovely moist cake which is gluten-free - when you pull the cake out of the oven, it will look like it's not done in the centre. That's fine - it is!
