Banana Ripening Conditions

The conditions for a successful banana ripening process are:

  • Temperature (14 -20 ° C for ripening)
  • Relative humidity (85-95%)
  • Ethylene gas (100-1000ppm for ripening)
  • Air movement (Room volume circulates 25-30 times in 1 hour)
  • Time (Ripening time 48 -96 h)

The door of the room is kept closed for 24 hours after the application of ethylene. At the end of this period, the room should be ventilated. Depending on the species and varieties, the products ripen within 2-4 days and reach the eating condition and turn yellow.
