I have never been a banana eater, but Elise loves them. I like to buy a large bunch at the beginning of each week, but keeping them from getting too ripe and mushy before she can eat them all is a challenge.
WikiHow offers this tip:
Put the bananas in the produce drawer of your refrigerator after they are fully ripe. Refrigeration slows the ripening process considerably, but does not stop it. The peel will continue to turn brown, but the fruit will stay fresh and firm for 1 to 2 weeks.
