Do you have a paper bag to put them in? That hastens ripening.

Did you accidentally buy plantains? My sister did that once.

Put them next to other fruits, like apples.

I recently learned that organic bananas are green and stay green for a long time because they are not sprayed with a certain chemical that speeds ripening. I bought some organic bananas and it took about 5 weeks and they started to ripen. I even tried putting them in a bag with an onion but that didn’t work either. I will not buy organic bananas again.

I ate one today. it was still a little green but it didn’t taste too bad.

and @ninjastar haha it wasn’t a plantain. just bananas here, no fancy exotic fruit at the local grocery here in town. I can’t even get papaya here, but can get some at the grocery next town over when it’s in season. papaya is my favorite.

Is a plantain fancy? Idk we have a large Hispanic population in my city so there are plantains everywhere.

I don’t know. probably not, but im not used to seeing them in the grocery stores here in the Midwest. definitely not in this little town. I can’t even get romaine lettuce in town. have to go to “the burg” to get some haha.
