Bananas are revered as one of the world's divine foods. You have never experienced bananas like this small, red variety unless you've visited Ecuador or Central America. They are smaller in size than the common Cavendish banana and have a creamy white to pink flesh, with a slight raspberry flavor. They can be sliced and dried or eaten raw in salads, but are usually eaten fresh out of hand. The redder the fruit, the more carotene it contains. They also have more vitamin C than the yellow variety. A good source of fiber, potassium and vitamin C. Eat one a day, it contains 8 amino-acids your body cannot produce by itself.

Red Bananas, when ripe, should have a purplish hue. Choose slightly firm Red Bananas and avoid bruises or cracks. Store Red Bananas uncovered at room temperature. Turn occasionally. To prepare for frying, simply cut off ends and peel. Season with fresh herbs from Melissa’s.

Peel and enjoy raw, eaten out of hand. Slice and add to fruit salads, fry, or leave whole for decorative use.
