Depending on your preference for ripeness, bananas should have even coloring except for the tips (which may be slightly green on a ripe fruit). Small to medium-sized bananas are often thought to have better flavor, but this is not always the case.
Do not refrigerate bananas until they are ripe. When you put them into the refrigerator they will turn black, but the insides will ripen slower.
Avoid bananas with soft spots, black and moldy stems or patches of different colors. Gray-yellow or dull yellow bananas are an indicator of improper temperature handling and will probably not develop full flavor.
