  • Just cut the banana in half with a knife that way when your ready to use the other half you can just cut the exposed part off and I'm sure it would be fine.

  • I wrap the other end in Press n Seal or Saran Wrap and it keeps for a day.

  • Leave it in the skin and keep it in the refrigerator.

  • Don't put in fridge, it will go bad faster. Why don't' you eat the other half? Just a suggestion. You can put the other half in a ziploc baggie.

  • I have seen mini bananas at most stores. Maybe that would be a better alternative to buying the bigger ones.

  • actually tyfry, the cold slows the process of it going bad. If you have bananas that are going bad, you put them in the fridge and you can get a few more days out of them. (the outside will look brown/black but the inside will be fine)

  • I'd just buy smaller bananas. But in the past Ive sliced the remainder and froze them to make smoothies later.
