I typically peel from the stem, unless the banana is somewhat green/firm, in which case I grab it by both ends and snap it in twain.

I learned this latter technique from BEAT.

I figure monkeys are smarter than me, so I eat bananas the way they do - from the tip.

They eat it like the gif above though.

Anyways, uhh, stem. It's like an organic tab to pull.

I like my bananas a little green. I always open them the same way though from the tip.

I feel like everyone peeled from the stem until very recently, I didn't learn about peeling from the tip until a few years ago.


millenials are ruining bananas

You pinch the little hard brown bit, it should crack open with minimal effort and then you can just peel it back.

The real reason to peel from the tip is that you get an ideal Mario Kart slippin' banana that way (once you draw the happy face on with a black marker).

I find that tab way more resistant to my peeling efforts than the other end.

Blech. Green bananas are the worst. I like mine from ripe to a bit over-ripe, mottled in black. If it has any green on it, then it's not ready to eat.

I like my bananas with a little more bite to them and a little less mushy semi-solid

Yes, but then you get your fingers all sticky from the muck in the tip.

I have only ever seen one person peel from the tip. I thought he was just being weird.

Pinching the tip means your first bite of banana is nasty banana ass poo. Peel from the stem and eat like A GOD

What? No. Someone obviously doesn't know what they are talking about.

All you stem-peelers need to give tip-peeling a chance. You get the same amount of banana, a handle to hold, and there's no chance of accidentally squishing the banana if it's too ripe / not ripe enough.

Why are you encouraging people to start with the most disgusting bite of the banana? Are you an evil mastermind??

If you dont like that little brown thing at the tip of the banana just peel it away when you open it.
