That's when he spotted a large white sac coming out of the overripe banana. "He thought it was tissue at first," she told News 4 in an email. Her husband used a knife to cut open the sac, and out came the dead spider. "I was gonna eat this banana!" he could be heard exclaiming to another person in cellphone video provided to News 4.
