Banana Ripening:

The banana ripening is a process that accelerates the ripen of the fruit. This procedure is obligatory because the bananas are harvested while there are still unripe and therefore unsuitable for consumption. This procedure is harmless because it follows the natural course of ripening. For the controlled ripening of bananas ethylene is used. Ethylene is a gaseous organic compound which regulates various natural functions. It is considered to be a natural hormone that affects the ripening of fruit. This way, bananas are evenly ripened and acquire all the desirable characteristics as implied by market needs.

There are 5 ripening processes. They depend on the desirable time of ripening and on the initial status of the fruit.

The days of completion of the process vary from 4 to 8.

Below are described the stages of ripening:
