Storing bananas in the refrigerator will stop the ripening process. Even if later removed, they won't ripen further. The skin will turn brown in the refrigerator, but the banana itself will stay firm and not change color.

I agree with Aria about the green bags, and just for info bananas contain more potassium when they are really ripe & the jacket is starting to go brown, my dad told me that, he was a greengrocer all his life ;0)

I agree with all of you.


The best way for bannana to ripen is if you set them on a metal counter for a few days. I learned that.
Chef Ryan is here to help. Just call on me.
