Preservation Methods

preservation: 

Store bananas at room temperature away from direct sunlight and heat. Refrigerating bananas will turn the skin black. Bananas become yellow, soft, and sweet as they ripen. If you want to speed the ripening process, put bananas in a paper bag along with an apple overnight. The natural ethylene gas released by the apple will help ripen your bananas. Bananas are very delicate and can be easily damaged by extreme temperatures, hot or cold. If bananas turn black then most likely the fruit was exposed to extreme cold temperatures.
