i'd like to object to the notion that bananas bit-rot rapidly. on the
contrary, bananas can still be consumed when the peel starts to turn
black. in fact the longer you wait the sweeter they get. bit-rot does
not even set in until after those black spots appear. at that point
however bit-rot happens at the same speed as with most products.
the common perception of banana bit-rot is skewed by supermarkets
exclusively serving alpha and beta quality products that require the
user to wait until the product has reached maturity. most users consume
bananas prematurely and are thus not aware of how a mature banana is
supposed to taste like.

again i disagree, FruitSalad(TM) has made the combination of apple and
banana accessible to the every day user. in fact, compared to all other
components apple and banana are the most common.
