... the product is too inconsistent to give it a good review. Sometimes they arrive in perfect shape
January 5, 2018
We've ordered these many times over the past year and the product is too inconsistent to give it a good review. Sometimes they arrive in perfect shape, a little under-ripe, and we enjoy them over the course of a week. Other times they are already very ripe and need to be eaten within a day or two. Our most recent bunch was the most disappointing: they arrived looking yellow and fresh, but were mostly frozen. As they thawed out over the course of the day they turned solid black and we had to throw them away without using any of them. I wish the consistency would improve, but we won't be buying bananas for a while until Amazon has had some time to figure out a new QC process.
Edited to remove a star. We tried ordering again and the bananas we received have been green for a week and a half now. I tried putting them in a brown paper bag with no luck. Tried other ripening methods with no effect. Eventually tried opening and eating one and it wasn't sweet at all. We've been happy with almost all of our other produce orders from Fresh - I don't know why they can't figure out the bananas!
For reference, we're in Dallas. Another 5 star reviewer included a picture of their bananas that came in a bag from the grower. Ours have only ever come in a standard produce bag like what you get at the store. Maybe other Fresh locations get a different, better product.
