Eat themEat them. Bananas continue to ripen after being picked. They are considered to be ideal when a few brown spots appear, although many people prefer green bananas and over-ripe ones.

DO refrigerate them, if they are browning faster than you can eat them- the skin will darken but the fruit will stay fresher longer. To slow ripening, don't store bananas with other fruit- ie the typical fruit basket or bowl is not a good idea for bananas, as they ripen too fast.
