30 Bananas a Day!

It's been cold for a while now and I've found it hard to ripen bananas in this time of weather. My house is normally a little less than room temperature in the winter and usually gets hot in the summer, naturally. So my question is... What should I do about ripening? I read that bananas should be kept out of direct sunlight for ripening and they ripen faster at warm temperatures and can be refrigerated for slow ripening. I'm trying to ripen them faster so I can eat them within a few days. Are there any downsides to keeping bananas warm to ripen them faster and how do you do so? Please give me any advice you have...

Would also love the tips on my end! Got a case that needs to ripen faster!!!

Thank you. :)

I have a long time frugivore friend who lives in a place where its cold in the winter. He uses a heat blanket over the box of bananas with a thermometer inside the box to check on, making sure they're warm enough, because they just won't ripen properly below 55 deg F (or 13 celsius). Over time you will figure out how to control the ripening speed to a degree, by adjusting the heat.    

Something my friend and both I do is leave the bananas in the plastic sheet that comes with cases of bananas when you buy them. The fruit is from a tropical environment and tastes better (and more creamy) when you make sure their environment is humid. 

good luck!

I personally do not like to force ripen my fruit and have found that bananas can give off an unpleasant smell if forced to ripen and or confined in airtight spaces.  

I usually just buy my fruit ahead of time.  Most of the fruit I will eat today was bought 5-7 days ago, and the fruit I am buying today, I will probably eat next week.  I have bins where I am storing the sweet stuff and just let nature do its work.  

Peace, PK

Thanks for your advice. :D I'll keep them in larger supply, buy more frequently and keep the temperatures consistent so I won't have to wonder what to eat in the pastime.

+1 Sam.
