My 5 yr old daughter loves bannanas as I do. Unfortunately she does not like them after the are no longer “green” and sweet. Is there a trick to slowing down the ripening process?Thanks
It is best to store bananas at room temperature away from ethylene producing fruits and vegetables. Ethylene is a type of naturally occurring ripening gas produced as some fruits and vegetables mature and will hasten the ripening of bananas as well as other fruits. High ethylene producing fruits are: Apples, apricots, avocados, cantaloupe, honeydew, kiwifruit, mangoes, nectarines, papayas, peaches, pears, plums and tomatoes. Placing bananas in the refrigerator will stop their ripening process. The skin will turn black, but does not hurt the fruit inside For more storage tips, click here.
