4 - Plastic Wrap Method 

The plastic wrap method is one of the most effective ways to keep bananas fresh for longer. All you need is some plastic wrap/ cling film and you can begin. Tear off a portion of the wrap and then gently wrap it around the stem of the bananas.


Once the stem is tightly wrapped tuck the end of the wrap under the stem and it will be tightly sealed. Once you take off a banana to eat you will need to gently rewrap the stem to ensure it is once again full sealed.

So, how does the plastic wrap method work? Well, it’s actually quite simple the wrapping prevents ethylene gas from reaching other parts of the banana. Ethylene gas is produced naturally when bananas ripen however when the gas reaches other sections of the fruit it prematurely ripens it. Having the wrap in places blocks the gas keeping your fruit fresh for longer!
