Why does my banana fruit (Berkuba) have brown spots?

My Berkubas have always had brown spots on the fruit, all bunches, for the past 4 years. I had some health problems and did not believe I would ever garden again, but my health has had a turnaround and thankfully I am gardening again. I am an organic gardener, and am sure someone knows exactly what my bananas have. My plants are beautiful, now that I am watering them, but the fruit has brown spots--not on the peel, just on the flesh. Thanks for your interest and your time. Don
