Organic Gros Michel Banana

Out of stock

Gros Michel, also known as Bluefields, was the main export banana of yesteryear, but was replaced by Cavendish when a diseased wiped them out for large scale production. Often cited as being extinct (not true) and delicious (very true), these are everything you always wanted out a classic banana: rich aroma with smooth and thick texture, excellent all around, and especially good for giving a bold banana flavor when incorporated into recipes. Certified organic.

Lovely, creamy banana with a firm texture and candy-like flavor, with lingering sweet, floral notes.  Great for snacking or baking into puddings or banana bread.

When green, takes between 3-7 days to ripen. The warmer it is, the quicker it will ripen.

Grown in Haleiwa, Oʻahu, Hawaii
