If you buy bananas and don't eat them right away, the fruit begins to darken. The texture of this product becomes too soft and the taste is bitter. Therefore, you should use a simple life hack to keep the fruit fresh for as long as possible. A universal method of storing bananas was published by the American publication Eat This, Not That.

To keep bananas fresh for a long time and not blacken, they need to be wrapped in cling film. The fruit should be immediately in the peel. This wrapping keeps the natural gas ethylene at the end of the fruit. Otherwise, it would spread to the entire banana and accelerate ripening.
