6 Convenient tricks to keep your bananas from spoiling

Here’s how to avoid brown bananas


One day they appear all green, and the next moment you’re suddenly stuck with a bunch of overripe, brown bananas. We’re sharing six tips to keep the yellow fruit fresh!

Bananas will start ripening the moment they’re taken from their tree. As soon as they’re plucked, the stem will start releasing ethylene gas. However, the ripening is slowed down when you hang the fruit. Additionally, you’ll prevent bruising your bananas on your sink or the fruit bowl. Of course you can make your own construction to hang them, but fortunately they’re also available special ‘banana hangers’.
