If you do put bananas in the fridge, make sure to give them a separate place. The fact is that this fruit releases a plant hormone for rapid ripening, so neighboring products may simply spoil.

Also, apricots, pears, apples, and potatoes emit ethylene less actively.

Do not store ripe fruits together with unripe fruits, because due to the release of ethylene, unripe fruits will begin to ripen faster.
