I love Bananas, but I can't seem to keep them from browning quickly! Are there tricks to help keep your banana green/yellow as long as possible?

Here's what you can do to keep the flesh of a peeled banana from turning brown,

  • Mist it or dip it in the juice of an acidic fruit such as lemon, lime, orange, or pineapple.
  • There are also commercial preparations such as Ever-Fresh and Fruit-Fresh, which have a similar effect.
  • Store bananas away from other fruits, as the ethylene gas given off affects ripening.
  • Ripening can be halted by placing the banana in the refrigerator, but this will cause the skin to darken considerably.
  • Place bananas in a brown paper bag and store in the refrigerator. they stay fresh longer and the turning brown process is much slower.
