read online about ways to preserve your bananas, but which way is the best? In this instructable I compared 3 methods of preserving
bananas: refrigeration, putting plastic wrap on the stem, and a banana tree. I predicted that the plastic wrap would work the best
because it stops the ripening chemical from reaching the rest of the banana. I used two bananas for each method - in case one
was bad to begin with (to get the best results). This test was conducted over a 7 day period. NOTE (The bananas were taken before
they were ripe, which may affect results on the refrigeration method)
Step 1: The Overall Results
(banana 3) was the worst. To properly use the plastic wrap method, wrap the stem of the banana in plastic wrap (the stem
releases ripening chemicals to the rest of the banana, this will slow this down).
Step 2: Refridgerator Style
Step 3: Banana Tree Style
Step 4: Plastic Wrapped
rest of the banana slowing down the ripening time. This method is also very convenient because you can do this with a single
banana - unlike the banana tree, which requires a pair of bananas to work. I would absolutely recommend this method to anyone
who likes to keep their bananas fresh longer!
