Truong argues that storing different fruits in the same fruit plate causes them to spoil quickly due to "competing interests."

You can also wrap the tips of the bananas in foil or cling film, separating them from each other. This way, you will reduce the effect of ethylene on fresh bananas. That's why it's best to store bananas at room temperature and without any other fruit in the vicinity.
