The banana is many times considered nature’s perfect food because it offers so many health benefits. It is low in sodium, high in potassium, and contains approximately 6 vitamins and 11 other minerals!
The common banana, or the Cavendish Banana, is native to tropical countries like Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The banana is truly popular worldwide.
This can be served in a multitude of different ways in breakfast items like cereal, pancakes, and waffles; chilled fruit juice, fruit salads, desserts, and even poultry or meats.
Melissa’s Organic Bananas are hand-selected for excellent quality. As is true with most bananas, the Organic Banana is harvested green and then allowed to ripen while transported to its destination.
Avoid bananas with split skins. Bananas with brown or black spotted peels only indicate ripeness, while the fruit itself remains unchanged. Store at room temperature. Once ripe, bananas may be refrigerated for a few days.
