6 Tips to Make Your Bananas Last Longer


If you want to prevent your bananas from turning brown quickly, here are few tips thanks to Taste of Home.

Buy green bananas: The easiest way to prolong your bananas’ shelf life

Hang your bananas: Ethylene gas is released through banana stems when picked. Hanging them slows down the gas.

Wrap banana stems in plastic wrap: This will also slow the gas released through banana stems.

Freeze your bananas: This is a good way to preserve for future use.

Place ripe bananas in the fridge: The cool temperatures will keep them from ripening further (for a few days at least).

Buy a banana keeper: This will protect your bananas from bruising, which causes squishy parts and speeds up ripening.
