A Nottinghamshire father of three, who has been reluctantly eating all the manky fruit in the bowl, has had his first decent banana in three years.
Peter Thape (40) from Mansfield, has watched his children pick bruise-free apples, symmetrical tangerines, and perfectly ripe pears, whilst he has been left with all the spazzy fruit in the bowl.
Thape, who has accepted his sacrificial role within the family in order to get some vitamins into his children, was eventually rewarded when a recent freak bunch of bananas didn’t turn brown within an hour.
‘There it was, the banana – all perfect looking. I’d forgotten how good they can taste,’ said Thape.
‘Don’t have children. This is the stuff they can’t warn you about,’ added Thape.
