When to pick bananas?
My neighbor (whose house is empty) has a banana tree that hangs over into my yard. A nice big bunch of bananas are also hanging over into my yard. The purple "thingy" is hanging down now and the bananas are still green but not the dark green they were two weeks ago. They guy who watches over her yard usually cuts the bananas down long before now since he doesn't want them,just throws them away to keep her yard tidy. but since these are over the fence, I guess he doesn't feel he should cut them down. The house is empty and the owner has told me if I ever want them to go ahead and take them.
When should I cut them off and bring them in the house?
If I pick them now, will they ripen? Seems like the stores have them so green alot of the time anyways.
