banana spots

< Previous | Next >
What is the word for the spots which appear in ripe bananas?

Is "點" the right word for this? Perhaps 斑點?

Can one say, for example, that 香蕉放幾天後就發點了 (香蕉放几天后就发点了)?

    I just posted a thread concerning "spot" in English forum :p

    Well, in your sentence, both 点 and 斑点 are correct, and 点 is more commonly used. 斑点 sounds like a description from an article.

    But one thing to correct: 香蕉放几天后就点了。
    We use 发 for 发霉(mildew)
