Abuja market women are 100% guilty of using cabide. I have eaten plantain ripened with cabide.

It doesnt taste well.

Rots easily.

The skin blackens and hardens easily while the skin becomes permanently glued to the plantian.

Like have been stated above, its better to wrap with a black nylon and keep in the cooler. Mind you, immatured plantain will not "force- ripen" easily. It will first mature before it ripens.

My sentiments too, but strangely enough some unscrupulous farmers/market women use the same formular to forcefully ripen the fruits they sell to us here in Naija.

@OP/all, rather than use calbide wrap fresh chilli pepper with the plantain in a black nylon and keep in a dark place. 24hrs, 36 max you'll have your ready-to-it plantain!!!

the best is for u to pour warm water on the plantain, put it on a nylon and tie and put it on a sack too. if the plantain is matured, the next day u will get ur results.

You an also try putting them together in an air-tight plastic bag with other kinds of climacteric fruits that are already undergoing the ripening stage (giving off ethylene) e.g. Bananas, paw-paw, cantaloupe. Then store in a dark place (like your kitchen cupboard).

Put the plantains in a bag with one or two apples cut into pieces. The apples will speed the ripening process. I learned this from working in a Nigerian restaurant in Atlanta.

Put the plantain in a sack, then put the sack inside a cooler, within 2-3days, it should be ripe.

if you want it faster, lets say two days maximum. the first day, put a cabide in the midst of the plantain and wrap tight in a thick nylon, then cover with either a cloth or a sack. make sure there is no space for air to come thru. the next day, around the time you covered the plantain open and remove the cabide change the nylon because its gonna be wet. this time around cover the plantain without the cabide but the same procedure. the next day your plantain is fresh ripe. \

hope this help

you could wrap them in a brown paper bag or newspaper and keep them in a dark place for a couple of days
