It's weird that you can't refrigerate bananas.

Well, the title of the post pretty much says it all.  Probably this was just worthy of a tweet, not a whole blog.  But it's 4:30 am, I just got home from work a little while ago, and I have to be back in about 5 hours.  So this is all I've got for tomorrow/today, depending on how you look at it.
Think about it though: can you name anything else that doesn't last longer when you put it in the refrigerator?  Fruit, vegetables, bread, juice, milk; pretty much any food product you can think of lasts longer (or at least just as long) in the fridge.  But not bananas.  They get worse real fast.  That's weird.

  1. For the first 25 years of my life I was under that same assumption, but I recently realized that you actually can refrigerate them once they're the right level of ripe-ness. Even though they look like they've gone bad because their peels get darker more quickly, it does slow down the banana itself from ripening further. Just don't put unripe bananas in the fridge :)
