Care, Keeping of Bananas

When you bring home a bunch of bananas, you'll want to store them properly so they will stay fresh for a long time.

Green-tip bananas will reach their peak of ripeness if you take them out of the plastic produce bag and keep them at room temperature. This enables them to continue the ripening process and in just a few days they will be tender enough for eating.

To store bananas for longer time, keep in refrigerator.
