    we buy supermarket ones but always buy loose not in a bag and keep them away from other fruit
    also put them in a carrier bag and hang on a cupboard handle (one that you dont use that often) so they dont get bruised laying down :)
    ours last all week :)

    keep you bananas separate like manda says... they also ripen any other fruit they are in the bowl with so you end up with fruit that goes off too quickly. And if you can get one of those banana hangers even better as they bruise whenever they touch anything!

    bananas - the worlds most high maintenance fruit! :rotfl:

    Bananas should be kept in a warm environment, in the cold they go off quicker. I used to work in a farmshop and bananas were always kept in the warm office, away from the other produce.

    I only like cold narnas.

    I buy my fruit wherever, tesco, co-op, londis..

    I have to be careful though because I am allergic to most fruit and if I eat the wrong fruit I end up looking like Leslie Ash round the chops.
