Do you have a bunch of bananas in your produce drawer? If so, do you ever wonder if bananas sink or float? Well, we don’t know the answer to that question definitively. But here are some facts about bananas to help you decide how best to handle this situation!
First off, let’s talk about what type of banana it is. There are three types: Goldfinger, Lady Finger and Apple Banana. The Lady Finger will always be the one that floats because they’re not fully ripe yet. Meanwhile, an Apple banana will always sink because they’re fully ripe! So now we know which ones do what, but does this mean all other types go either way?
Let’s find out with our next fact: Bananas have air pockets at the top. Air weight is less than water, so that means it will float!
Finally, let’s wrap up with our last fact: do bananas sink or float? It turns out you may not be able to know for sure – but one thing we do know is what type of banana they are and how ripe they are! So there you go. You now have some facts about bananas to help make your decision easier on whether they’ll sink or float in a bowl full of water!
tips on handling produce drawer situation; don’t care which ones will sink or float as long as I can tell by looking/knowing their type and ripeness level
Bananas Have Air Pockets At The Top
Air Weight Is Less Than Water, So That Means It Will Float!
You May Not Be Able To Know For Sure – But One Thing We Do Know Is What Type Of Banana They Are And How Ripe They Are!
Finally, let’s wrap up with our last fact: do bananas sink or float? You may not be able to know for sure – but one thing we do know is what type of banana they are and how ripe they are! So there you go. You now know the answer to your burning question.
The banana peel will always float – but that is just because it has a thicker skin and contains air pockets, so don’t be too surprised if you see an unpeeled banana floating in some water!
If they are very ripe, they will sink; not only do bananas go bad when overripe, but as they continue to ripen their weight increases until finally sinking below the surface of any liquid. That’s why we suggest waiting for at least four days before eating them!
You can tell how ripe a banana is by examining its color; riper fruit have more yellow on the outside and browner flesh inside. Also look out for bruising or shriveling at the ends.
When peeled, bananas will not float and they are also heavier than unpeeled fruit; because of this we do not recommend peeling them before tossing in a pool or sea!
Finally, to ensure that your banana is fresh enough to consume, examine it for any signs of bruising on its skin – you can tell if these areas have started turning brown as well as wrinkling when you touch them with your fingers. If so, leave it alone and find another one.

Bananas are a popular fruit that can be enjoyed in many ways – from baked goods to smoothies and cocktails. But what do you do when your banana ends up rotten? This is one of the most frequent questions we hear! Read below for five facts about bananas that will help answer this question as well as other common queries like whether they should float or sink while underwater.
You can tell how ripe a banana is by examining its color; riper fruit have more yellow on the outside and browner flesh inside. Also look out for bruising or shriveling at the ends. When peeled, the flesh should be yellow and uniform in color.
If you want to know whether the banana will float or sink while underwater, it might depend on how ripe it is! Riper fruits have more air inside them so they’re less dense than unripe ones. As a result, riper bananas are better at floating – but this isn’t always true since other factors like weight can also play a role (a heavier fruit sinks).
The peel of an under-ripe banana has natural plant waxes that make it waterproof which means bacteria won’t grow on its surface when submerged in water for hours – just don’t submerge too long as the skin can rot from being wet for too long.
