I assume she had box cars in mind.
It's already been explained that this refers to ripe ones. And for those who don't know, the skin of a ripe or nearly ripe table banana turning brown or black does NOT affect the interior, at least not for several days. So you don't really "ruin" the banana in the refrigerator, though it's understandably not very salable in a market with darkened skin.
