    RJR makes two banana fabrics (I'm not sure why)... one where the bananas are all yellow and the other where they are very ripe.

    I chose the all-yellow ones ... but do you think I made a mistake? The ripe ones are more realistic...

    One is darker than the other, so a lighter one would work for one project and the darker one would work for another.

    I like them both and think both should be offered.

    The ripe ones would of been my choice. But the bright yellow would work in certain projects.

    I like the yellow bananas. They look cleaner, but it would depend on what you are doing with it. WTG

    Yes, ripe is more realistic but the others appeal more to me. So for me you bought the right ones.

    I like the yellow ones. I wouldn't even buy the "ripe" ones at the grocery store! Those are too soft for me! Too many brown spots. lol

    The ripe ones are so realistic -- it looks like a photograph. But I like the yellow fabric better. The bananas look fresher.

    Well if you're going to make Banana Bread, use the bottom riper ones. If it's Banana Pudding, use the top yellow ones! Ha! I like them both but yes, the bottom looks more realistic.

    I love overripe bananas, so the very ripe would be my choice. Also, it seems to have more definition

    I like both, but the brighter ones are best. But it really depends on what you are doing with the fabrics.
