What are bananas?

What should we do to preserve bananas after harvest?
Today, in order to improve export value as well as ensure the highest nutritional content to customers, customers can trust and choose to use cold storages in preserving bananas instead of using refrigerators.
As is known, the problems encountered when preserving bananas by mechanical means is that they are crushed and lack of safe preservation methods causing the bananas to wither, darken and develop pathogens that reduce their nutritional value, safety and quality.
Therefore, if not processed in time, bananas will quickly decompose and rot, cross-contaminating pathogens to other fruits causing the mass rot. In order to prolong the shelf life of fresh bananas, farmers, fruit export companies and farm owners need to carefully study the methods of external preservation, application in combining with cold storage to minimize the harmful effects of mold and microorganisms on people health.
In short, using cold storages will help customers successfully remove the food-borne odors and molds that can generate enzymes that are harmful to health.
