Splitting Banana Skins

Over the last year or two, we’ve had several bunches of bananas that split their own skin:

Banana with split skin
Banana with split skin

Apart from the slightly dried section directly under the split, the banana is perfectly edible.

Not sure what it means, other than that we‘re probably not causing it. We don’t recall it happening in the Good Old Days.

Cavendish bananas will probably vanish in a few decades, so enjoy ’em while ya got ’em.
