Why Are Bananas Yellow?

Answer

Bananas are yellow in colour due to the effect of the artificial ripening process. Bananas are typically stored at about 17 degrees Celsius and then treated with a low concentration of ethylene. Bananas which are allowed to ripen naturally on the plant usually have a more greenish-yellow form which then changes to a brownish-yellow as they continue to ripe.
