Best Ways To Store And Use Bananas

Best Storage

The countertop is the best place to store bananas.

Keep your bananas somewhere nice and cool, on the counter or in the pantry.

Can I Freeze It?


Bananas can go brown quite quickly, so if you see them start to get speckled, peel and freeze them to use later.

Fresher For Longer

Hang the bananas on a banana hook and keep them separate from other fruits to prevent your other fruit from ripening quickly.

To slow the ripening of your bananas, wrap and seal the stems together with plastic wrap. Once they are ripe, pop them in the fridge. The peel will turn black from the cool air, but the inside is perfectly fine and should last a couple more days.

Use It Up

Frozen bananas are great for smoothies and in baked goods like banana bread. Blend frozen bananas in a food processor for a healthy alternative to ice cream or bake them in the oven with a bit of honey on top for a nice dessert.

Did You Know?

Wrapping and sealing the stems together limits the amount of oxygen the stem receives and reduces the quantity of ethylene that is released, and can keep bananas fresh for longer.
