Best Products cite UMaine Extension information in article about Nana Hat

In an article about the Nana Hat, a product from ABC’s “Shark Tank” that helps preserve bananas by covering the stem with a silicone cap, Best Products cited information from University of Maine Cooperative Extension that explains how most fruits produce a gaseous compound called ethylene that starts the ripening process. The Nana Hats are a silicon cap that can be wrapped around the stem of the bunch and stifle ethylene release, with a magnet at the tip to secure a cute little knit cap. Yahoo News shared the Best Products report.
