In South Korea, some stores package their bananas together in various ripeness stages so you can eat them over several days without them going brown. – They call them “one-a-day” bananas.

    Thats a fucking cool idea. But id like to have my bananas without additional plastic around them.

  2. You can do this yourself in store. You don’t have to grab a whole ripe batch or an entire unripe batch. You can take some from each…

  3. a9ainstthedeadhand says:

    Great idea but I’d also want a mushy banana or two so I could make delicious banana bread right away.

  4. Of the spectrum of ripeness shown, what’s the perfect ripeness?

    IMO, second from the left is perfect. My wife would disagree strongly.

    From giving us BTS and now relieving IBS, South Korea has been on fire lately.

  6. I get the idea but damn it’s so wasteful.

  7. Does it really work? Don’t bananas or fruit in general give off ethylene gas, this would make them ripen faster.

  8. dsuave624 says:

    Great concept but unfortunately the ripest banana will accelerate the ripening (sp) of the other ones. Eventually, the 2 greens ones will be identical.

    P L A S T I C 🙂

  10. NotJustZurg says:

    Am I the only one that likes em when they go all overripe with little speckles and stuff??

  11. undercover-racist says:

    But brown bananas are the tastiest bananas…

  12. whiskeyvacation says:

    I’d pay extra for that

  13. GYN-k4H-Q3z-75B says:

    Absurdly convenient. I love it but in some ways it’s also disturbing to see that this is what we have arrived at.

  14. gladius011081 says:

    Eat one a day while they are ripe and use the over ripes to make banana milk

  15. lunenburger says:

    Yeah, I buy my bananas by weight so I do already this when I buy anyway — but no plastic.

  16. galaxyfruit says:

    I love this! I don’t drive or live in a city so getting fresh produce can be hard when I’m not able to shop very often.

  17. FuckTrumpBanTheHateR says:

    Maeil Maeil, Ha-na Banana.

    Koreans love the repeated sound words.

    It kinda sounds like Hannah Montana.

  18. simjanes2k says:

    I saw that for a while at a grocery store near me. They gave it up after a while, though.

  19. DarkNemuChan says:

    It’s brilliant!

  20. shahooster says:

    First two are already too ripe for me.

  21. emo-tastic says:

    The ideal banana is around the day 4 option. If a banana is too green it’s bitter, too yellow, its too sweet but 4 hits just right.

  22. Evening_Bake_7788 says:

    First K pop now this. Truly a society on the cutting edge

  23. DsDeliciousBiscuits says:

    Man, we so far off their understanding of things

  24. MettaMorphosis says:

    Come on America learn to fucking Banana like these guys.

  25. OrganizationNo6091 says:

    Holy shit that is so smart, I WANT IT!

  26. militant-moderate says:

    /r/thatsfuckingbrilliant

  27. Where I come from we use this think called common sense.

    One of the things I love most about South Korea is that they don’t let short-term set backs get in the way of long-term innovation. They’re willing to think outside the box and to act upon their ideas.

    For example, south Korea was one of the first countries in the world to introduce bike paths on their highways IIRC. The bike path, which ran centrally between traffic, was covered by solar panels. It was wildly successful, got more people to bike, generated a ton of clean energy.

    But in order to have all that, they had to make an initial investment. They were just wise enough to see the results beyond. I really wish more governments and organizations would follow suit; yes, sometimes you need to put a bit of work in, but it’s worth it. And, perhaps more importantly, if you DON’T put the work in, then it will only get worse. You can’t solve problems by ignoring them.

    Good on you for trying to create positive change yet again, South Korea.

  29. lizzardplaysruff says:

    Or…..you could sell them loose like they do here and you can pick whatever the heck level of ripeness you want!

  30. PastConsideration578 says:

    Such an elegant solution.

  31. strongapril2021 says:

    Very interesting and it takes time and efforts to do just that!.

  32. Platypusman666 says:

    Who the hell eats only one banana a day? o.O
    At least here in Brazil we eat them by the bunches. Maybe we ARE monkeys after all…

  33. TheBoneSmasher says:

    But what if they have been sitting on the counter for a while tho? 1 spoiled banana a day
