English term or phrase: Overripe banana
CONTEXT: Shopping list for a banana bread recipe.

2 overripe bananas

IMAGES: https://www.google.com/search?q=overripe banana&source=lnms&...

I am looking for confirmation from the Proz community :)
I am thinking of...

--bananes très mûres (brunes OU avec taches brunes)
--bananes trop mûres

Quelqu'un peut me confirmer ou a déjà croisé le terme culinaire officiel?

MERCI!

La traduction littérale, serait : "trop mûres". Dans le cas d'une recette (surtout pour un banana bread) on écrira "bien mûres" (chaire brune), ce qui permet d'éviter le caractère péjoratif de "trop mûres". On trouve aussi dans certaines recettes entre parenthèses : "bien mûres(plus elles le sont mieux c'est)."

agree  Tony M: After all, 'over-ripe' doesn't really necessarily mean 'excessively ripe', but rather, 'past the point of being' 'mûre à point'
