How To Store

Getting Tropicana bananas to you in perfect condition is our specialty and our passion. Here are a few tips for keeping your bananas ripe and ready to eat when you get them home.

  • The ideal way to store bananas is to hang them on a banana hanger or hook as it stops them from bruising.
  • Keeping bananas in the fruit bowl will speed up ripening for all your fruit because of the ethylene gas they release.
  • Bananas too green? To get your bananas ripe overnight, put them in a paper bag with an apple or a tomato.
  • Banana skin turns black in the fridge but the flesh isn’t affected and it will extend freshness for ripe bananas.
    Wrapping bananas in newspaper will keep their skin yellow, but don’t put green bananas in the fridge,
    unless you want to stop them ripening.
  • Peeled, chopped bananas freeze well and are a great standby for smoothies or a frozen treat. Sprinkle the pieces
    with a little lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.
