    Well, I’ll be darned! I swear I thought that they’d stay fresh longer if they WERE together. I thank you for this!!!! I’ll be sure to pull ‘em apart for now on.

    Also, never put them by apples. bananas touching apples, for some reason, ripen faster. It’s what I do when I need to make banana bread and the bananas aren’t ripe enough :)

    I also found a way to keep banana’s over a week. I leave them in the plastic bag the one you put veggies in when you check out at the grocery store. If you leave them in there and put them in the fridge, they will last over a week. Promise this really works.Have a wonderful day.

    Wrap aluminum foil around the stems and they will last longer also.

  8. How to keep banana fresh, simpy cut off the stems and keep in a brown paper bag. Works for me for a long while.

    It’s because bananas and all fruit naturally emit ethylene gas, which is a signal for them to ripen. Clustering the fruit just multiplies this effect and that’s why they ripen faster.
