Sorry bananas do not last long....when my children were all home, I peeled & froze them....and then melted chocolate and dipped them and refroze them...............I used the bittersweet chocolate and a double pan.....bottom with water and top with bittersweet chocolate chips...........and then froze them and bagged later dated...........or if you have one of those dryer units that is for drying fruit.................they have to be dipped in sugar lemon water and put on racks to dry for several days...............

They last longer in the refrigerator because they stop ripening. The skins will turn brown but the fruit stays firm.
It depends on what future use you have in mind. If you are making banana bread, then let the bananas get over-ripe, then peel, put them in a plastic container or bag, and store in the freezer. You can keep adding to this stock until it's time to make bread. For most other uses, better to peel and freeze before they ripen too far.
