30 Bananas a Day!

So two weeks ago I went to the wholesale produce market and bought a carton of bananas. I tried to ripen some quicker by putting them in brown paper grocery bags however they all seemed to ripen at the same speed. I have been eating bananas like crazy and even ate 27 in a day. It wouldn't be too bad to freeze some. Wondering if anyone knows of tricks to slow down and speed up the ripening process so they aren't all ripe at once.

Putting them in warmer and cooler places and putting some more ripe bananas in with them helps
Seperate your bananas, don't have them all in the same box next to each other, they release ethylene when they begin to ripen which ripens all the fruit around it.. including other bananas if nearby. Hope this helps.

tomatoes work for bananas and bananas work for all other fruits, cheers Darcy

you want to stager them.  to slow down ripening:

1 remove from box they came in (inside plastic bag)

2. put in colder areas of the house. my friend puts bananas in his garage which stays cool so those ripen slowest

3. put some in paper bags with an apple to hasten ripening.

4. decorate your house (ie: different areas of your home with bananas) you will see that some in some areas may ripen faster than others.

5. put a FAN on your banannas..  keeping them cool with airflow will generally slow down ripening, as it blows away ethelyne gas so it wont speed up ripening.

dehydrate or freeze if you have too many or just have a FRUITLUCK!   Good Luck! 

Thanks, John! I will try this!
