A banana starts out green and becomes increasingly yellow as it begins to ripen. Eventually, brown spots will appear and the banana will turn brown all over. A yellow banana is much sweeter than a green banana. This is due to the enzymes contained in it. Enzymes turn the starch into sugar, making the banana sweeter.
