Question ISO help/advice for bananas in fruit salad...

This is my first time making fruit salad. I am making it to last through out the week. I have put cantelope, honeydew, watermelon
and am about to put bananas
in it. but i need to know if it is ok that i put the bananas in now or will they have gone too mushy by thurday or friday?

I definitely would not put bananas in a fruit salad unless it is going to be eaten right away. They will turn brown and probably get mushy. Peaches or berries would be a nice addition to your fruit salad.

I agree with either putting the bananas in as needed or not using them at all. I vote for some strawberries in your fruit salad too!

Hold off on the bananas. I would add some blueberries.. They work really well with melon flavors.
