How to make bananas last longer – tips
Take some cling film and wrap it around the brown end of the perennial or the stalk. Because there is no more air at the end, the banana has a longer shelf life. To be on the safe side, you can attach cling film or a small plastic bag with adhesive strips.
- Store the bananas in a cool place away from light. A pantry or a box that protects you from heat is best suited for this. The optimal storage temperature is around 12 degrees.
- The refrigerator is also suitable as a storage place. There, after about a week, the skin turns brown to black, but the fruit is largely unaffected.
- Therefore, you can also simply remove the peel and put the fruit in a food storage container and put it in the fridge. However, do not store the bananas in the fridge for too long, as they gradually lose their flavor there.
- Always keep bananas away from other fruit, such as apples. The other fruit releases ethylene, which ripens nearby fruit faster.
