Jan 13, Re: Do green bananas ripen if they are cut off the tree but still on the branch? They should ripen fine, just might take a little longer than normal. Depending on how far along they were, the flavor might not be compromised.
Try the following: cut a hand of bananas and put them in a brown paper bag with a few apples.
Nov 27, Messing with their growth can cause the bananas to ripen too quickly, which wouldn't be good. If you pick them before they are fully ripened on the tree, you can easily ripen. Oct 30, Experts recommend that bananas remain on the tree until they are about 75 percent mature. This happens within about 75 days after you see the first bundle of bananas.

Like all fruit, bananas can ripen on or off the tree as long as they are mature enough. Step 1 Examine the bananas daily as they reach maturity. The bananas should be close to their normal size, and the ridges on the back of the fruit should smooth out when they are ready to be harvested.
