3 Convenient Tricks To Keep Your Bananas From Spoiling

One day your bananas may appear green while the next day they overrun with a bunch of overripe bananas. The following are six tricks to keep your bananas from over ripping.

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

2.Buy green bananas. If you are in a supermarket, trying to pick between green and yellow bananas, go for the latter option. They just look tastiest. Still it's better to pick the green variant. This way, they will be good for eating after turning ripe a little later or make a tasty treat out of them when they are unripe.

3.Wrap the banana stem in plastic foil. Remember the ethylene? The gas the stem gives off? There is a way to prevent this from speeding up the ripening process. You simply wrap the stem in some plastic foil or tin foil. It's the best to do this for every separate banana.
