These yellow bananas are the most widely used and classic banana variety that you’ve grown up with. Cavendish have been the staple lunchbox variety since the late 1950s, and for good reason! This variety has year-round availability, is disease resistant, and features a classic banana flavor.

Bananas contain many essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs; fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and various antioxidants and phytonutrients.

Cavendish ripen from bright green to a striking golden yellow. If you let them sit around in the fruit basket, they’ll develop a sun-kissed spotted brown look, that will eventually develop into a deep, dark brown.

Everyone has a different preference when it comes to the ideal eating stage, but the truth is you can actually eat them in all phases. Green bananas are great for making bananas chips, and you can even add to smoothies. For overripe bananas, they shine in bread recipes, pancakes, cookies and oatmeal – even ice cream! Bananas, in general, are incredibly versatile. They can be eaten out of hand, baked or added to fruit salads, desserts and more.
