08 Methods for Making Bananas Last Longer

Store Bananas Properly: Keep bananas at room temperature, away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Avoid storing them near other fruits,

Separate Bunches: If you have a bunch of bananas, separate them from each other. This will slow down the ripening process and help prevent them from spoiling too quickly.

Wrap the Stems: Covering the stems of bananas with plastic wrap or aluminum foil can help delay ripening. The stems release ethylene gas,

Use Banana Hangers: Hanging bananas can prevent them from getting bruised or flattened, extending their shelf life.

Refrigerate Ripe Bananas: If your bananas are becoming too ripe and you're not ready to eat them, place them in the refrigerator.

Freeze Ripe Bananas: If you have overly ripe bananas, consider peeling them and freezing them in a sealed container or plastic bag

Use Lemon Juice: Coat the cut ends of a banana with lemon juice. The citric acid in the juice can help slow down enzymatic browning and extend the banana's freshness.

Consider Green Bananas: If you prefer your bananas on the greener side, buy slightly unripe bananas.
