Ethylene gas is released as banana’s cells are damaged by ripening. This ethylene not only causes the banana to ripen, but also affects any other fruit nearby and I wondered if it would have the same affect on a tomato... it does. So if you have tomatoes that need ripening, put them alogside a banana to hurry the process along.
