nikki626 wrote:the fridge thing...as bananas ripen and start to brown, the fridge actually makes them brown faster, thus making your bananas go bad more quickly.
keeping them away from other fruit...this is just a guess, but here goes...ya know how whenyou get avocados n they're not quite ripe n to speed up the ripening you put them in a paper bag n they ripen faster? well, that happens cuz the gases given off by the fruit helps speed up the process. so i'm guessing that byhaving bananas near other fruits giving off gases it may speed up the ripening of your nanners...
brown nanners...in case anyone doesn't know, brown spots on nanners is actually a GOOD thing. the brown isn't rot, it's sugar oxidizing, meaning that naners with a few brown spots are sweeter than nanners with no brown spots. but also, if your nanner is almost blakk then i would probably find a newer nanner...
and thanx for all the great info on nanners....i'm sure to be passing this along to my friends =)

overripe bananas are good to bake with cause they're a lot sweeter tasting and softer
