4. Put every ripe banana in your fridge
What? Bananas in the fridge? You’ve probably not seen it before, nor have you decided that’s where you should keep the tasty yellow fruit. But it’s true: keeping the ripe, yellow bananas in a fridge can stretch the fruit’s lifespan. However, it’s not a good idea to do this with green bananas.
5. Freeze your bananas
Another way to keep your bananas good, is by freezing them! Our tip is to do so when they’re ripe. Don’t actually throw the full fruit in there, skin and all, but make sure to at least peel them. You could also preemptively cut the banana up. This’ll make it that much easier if you want to work the frozen fruit into a recipe at a later moment!
6. Buy a banana box
No doubt you’ve been in this situation: you’ve taking a banana with you to work, but by the time you arrive at your workplace, it’s all brown and banged up from sitting in your bag. This is where a banana box comes in: a hard case for your banana, that keeps it from bruising in your bag.
