Good for you, and it may well be that your non-supermarket bananas taste better - this could be for a variety of reasons, including minute genetic variations, ripening conditions, soil the nanas are grown in etc. I doubt it's nanything to do with it being organically produced. I just can't see a mechanism by which this could work.

Bear in mind that taste is influenced by so many factors, including expectation. For example, if you take one cheese and label it 'Traditionally produced vintage gourmet cheddar', price 5.99 and label another one 'Value cheddar, price 2.99', guess which one people genuinely believe tastes better?

That's why only a blind taste test is credible evidence.
