Totally cute, small, yellow banana with pale, off-white flesh.
Strong, flowery, banana fragrance with a little bit of something bright, maybe pineapple.
Soft with a cool feel. Dry!
Yummy combination of banana and pineapple and maybe a bit of strawberry.
OVERALL Overall Rating:
This is a diva of a banana if ever I saw one. You have to wait to eat it until the skin is black (not just a little black: BLACK) otherwise it is just “blah” with a tannic aftertaste. But, if you wait (and I mean WAIT – like three weeks well past what you think is a reasonable wait for a banana) then you will be rewarded with a tropical disco in your mouth — smooth, creamy, pineapply, strawberry, banana love. Oh and then the taste will linger and linger until eventually you think, “What is that weird flavor in my mouth? Oh – Is it STILL that banana? Good lord!” (This banana made me wait so long to eat it that I am overwhelmed with the use of ALLCAPS).
Some think the banana is good for fertility (hmm), while others are so convinced that the banana is bad luck that they won’t even let their comrades wear fruit of the loom undies. These seem like a tragic confluence of the two.
If you like bananas, have you seen this? That has to be the craziest and most pointless kitchen tool I’ve seen yet. I would love to hear more about the bananas you’ve tried as well as crazy kitchen tools you have or use. You can see the very short list of kitchen tools I like here.
