Green Banana Top Tips

To ripen green bananas quickly, place them in a paper bag and fold the top of the bag closed. This traps the natural gases that bananas give off as they ripen and speeds up the process.


Green bananas are actually really good for you – they are beneficial in various stomach ailments, such as gastric ulcers, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, and bacterial infection of the digestive tract.
