Look

for bright yellow, firm fruit.

Avoid

fruit with soft spots and mostly brown skin.

Select

medium (less likely to have a woody core), uniformly shaped roots for easier prep.

Ripen

green bananas in a brown paper bag at room temperature for about 3 days.

Refrigerate

to extend their life for up to 3 days (the skins will darken, but it won't impact the flavor ).
