  • My MIL eats a lot of bananas and she puts them in the frig so they last longer. The skin will turn black but she swears this is the best way. IDK.....we don't eat too many bananas

  • I leave them on the counter, I have a hook thing I hang them on. Bananas do not last very long any ways. So we eat them up quickly.

  • We leave them on the counter but only buy 3lbs at a time and with a family of 6 - they don't last.

  • On the counter in the coolest part of the kitchen, or on the "dining room" table, which is not in the kitchen but right by it.

  • I have a fruit basket on my counter, I keep them and other fruit in. But, my family loves fruit, so it all gets eaten pretty fast.

  • I leave them on the counter until they are too ripe for me, then I freeze them for making smoothies and banana bread.
