Banana vs Apple Decomposition
Name: Lily F.
What does a banana have that makes it decompose better than
an apple, when it is put in a room with the temperature at 20 degrees
Apples are slightly acidic so that helps slow decomposition compared to
bananas, which are also softer and ripen best at room temperature.
