It is im­por­tant to know how to se­lect your ba­nanas as Cal­cium car­bide liq­uid and ethep­hon are in­creas­ingly used to ripen them. So, con­sum­ing such ba­nanas will cause lots of health is­sues.

So while buy­ing ba­nanas it is im­por­tant to note that the stem should be lit­tle black­ish-brown in colour, which shows that ba­nana is not ripened with chem­i­cals.

A bet­ter way to buy them is to buy them slightly un­ripe and ripen them at home by keep­ing them in a news­pa­per be­fore con­sum­ing them.
