30 Bananas a Day!

Hello all,

I bought some bananas that the store claims were not gassed.  They are completely green...  How long do you guys think this will take to ripen?  they were a lot cheaper by the box

I dont think they will.

No gassy, no ripey!!!

 

Bananas do produce some of the (ethylene) gas on their own and depending on how green they are they probably will not ripen properly/fully if they have not been commercially gassed.

So you're telling me if I grew my own bananas, and never gassed them that they wouldn't ripen?  WTF
Not if you picked them green like they need to to transport them commercially.
Oh, they'll ripen just fine on the plant, and very tasty.
I was under the impression that bananas do NOT ripen on the tree and that you must pick them green and that they just take much longer to ripen.

99% of my bananas are gassed. Its a NON issue. :)

 

They use ethylene gas. Thats what you get when you put bananas in the pantry overnight and open the door.

Dear Arosemena,

As long as they were not picked too under-ripe, green non-gassed bananas should ripen fine.

Wrap them in brown paper bags to hasten ripening, or put a ripe 'nana next to them.

They will take longer to ripen than gassed bananas, but how long depends on room tempeerature.

I try to buy un-gassed bananas whenever possible from local growers. Sometimes they come very green and take a while to ripen, sometimes they come yellow and ripen in a few days - depends on how long they were left on the plant.

 

Love and Peaches XX♥

UPDATE:

My bananas from a month ago are RIPE.  No gassy-yes ripey
