Petrified Organic Bananas From Wholefoods…. WTF???!!!


(FEDERALJACK)   I bought organic bananas from Wholefoods. Five days later they are still green, but now are rock hard. It’s almost like they are petrified somehow. They are bananas not plantains, you can pause the video and look up the PLU number yourselves. This is not normal.

  • I worked at a grocery store that did a considerable amount of business. I was in the produce department and toured one of our suppliers and viewed the gassing rooms. Bananas come in plastic bags that have to be removed so they don’t ripen too fast because the gass is trapped in the bags. Here’s a short cut and paste about it…
    Ethylene gas is used to induce ripening. In fact, bananas ripen themselves by producing ethylene and that’s why adding more ethylene to the air will speed banana ripening further.
    To accelerate ripening at home, you just need ethylene gas. Luckily, tomatoes, apples, pears and bananas all produce it at an increasing rate as they ripen. If you put an apple or tomato in a bag with bananas, that will speed the ripening. Because bananas produce it, you can place the bananas in a bag to trap the gas and ripen them faster.

    Since you bought organic, maybe they weren’t gassed?
