mix some lemon juice with water and put the fruit in it.

You can stop apples and pears from going brown by dipping them in lemon juice after you slice them. I wouldn't think you could stop banana slices going brown though.

Don't put the banana in. Bananas ripen other fruits so you should always keep them seperate out of your fuit bowl anyway. The lemon thingy works
