30 Bananas a Day!

I think I'm getting some mold growing on my Bahri dates. They aren't all ripe and I'm afraid if I refrigerate them, they won't ripen. I'm afraid if I leave them on the counter closed in the box, they will all mold. There is a powdery black, charcoal substance that is starting to grow on some, mostly on the spot where the dates are attached to the stem. What should I do?

Just spread them out on the counter and eat them as they ripen, that's what I'm doing:)

They need air.  Don't leave them in the box.  I would rub the mold off under water and air them out as soon as you can.  I hang them up on the wall while I wait for them to ripen.

Thanks for the tips! I will let them breathe!
safest, ceanest way to ripen dates is in a paper bag outside. inside they develop mold, also dont leave them in plastic etc
I'm having the same problem.  I don't know how much of the box is still salvageable.
Grey are you keeping them outside or inside?
