I read online that bananas will ripen slower if you pull them apart from the bunch. I did this a few weeks ago but then I realized I’d have no idea if the ripening process did actually slow because I hadn’t thought to leave a few together.

So, behold, the Banana Experiment:

Day 1: All bananas look pretty much the same.

 

Day 2: Yep, all bananas look pretty much the same.


Day 3: Uh, yep, all bananas looking pretty much the same here!

 

Day 4: Sigh. All bananas look pretty much the same. Except of course for the missing fourth, which, well, looked a lot like a banana soy smoothie this morning.

 

I know what you’re all thinking. Some day my contributions to the banana sciences be recognized. Until then, separate your bananas or don’t separate them. See if I care!
