    How do you store Banana fruits for more than 2 days?

    I am fed up with it. We can't store them in a fridge. And keeping outside also does not work. They get black and begin rotting within 2 days. I have to buy only 6 to 8 each time. That is our 2 days consumption. If I buy more, I have to throw them as become damaged and rotten.

    I can't eat bananas once start to get mushy and get brown spots. I like mine partily green and firm.

    When they start to go bad, I freeze them and use them in smoothies. Then I don't have to throw away the ones I don't want to eat.

    I usually buy one bunch. Not fully ripe ones. I look for firm ones. half of them will be washed and dried and kept in polythene bags inside the fridge. My fridge has a compartment for fruits; the fruits are not easily spoiled if kept there.
    The other half we start eating.
    So we can consume almost all of them.
    Hardly anything gets spoiled

      Thanks for the comment. But, whenever I keep them in fridge, they turn black the next day itself. So, I do not keep in fridge.

    You might want to try to keep them in a darker place (as supposed to in direct Sun-light) and perhaps You can buy them a little less ripen.
    Good Luck! : )

    I buy them green, so it takes a couple of days for them to ripen fully.  Otherwise, they will turn very quickly and we won't have time to enjoy all of them.  I wish I knew how to keep them longer.

      Looks a good idea, to buy green. I should try this one.

    Is that even possible - storing bananas for more than 2 days? All it takes s fr my (adult) son to pay me a visit shortly after I've bought a bunch, and BOOM! The bananas are gone.

      Sometimes it happens with me also. But, nowadays, he seems has lost his interest in fruits.
