    Does anyone know how to stop bananas from ripening too quickly?
    I only bought some on Tuesday and they're too ripe already.

    I wish I knew. I buy them green and then they are practically rotten the next day.

    Bananas even the smell of them make me gag they are the one thing I won't eat.

    I suppose your only other option is to use a straw though

    They are in a dark cupboard, but maybe too close to the veg...

    Other fruit/veg oxidises (or some other technical term ) the bananas and ripens them.

    You can send the banana bread this way if you don't want to eat it

    I thought they were far enough away... I'll try a completely different cupboard and see if that works.

    Oh I want to eat it... that's the problem.

    I'm with the doc on this one.

    Can't stand bananas.The texture,taste, everything!

    I wouldn't know the difference between an under and over ripe one as i avoid buying them!
