Organic Pineapple Banana

Out of stock

This special banana is East African in origin where it is known variously as ‘Mchare’, ‘Muraru’, ‘Huti’ or ‘Mlali’, but we thought ‘Pineapple Banana’ might be easier to relate to. The ripe fruit has a thick and smooth texture with an aromatic, fruity flavor and subtle yet distinct tartness. Curiously, it is an ancestral parent to Cavendish, Gros Michel and Apple bananas which are some of the most popular bananas the world over, and the flavor and texture combines the best of all three.

Don’t judge a banana by it’s peel! The one thing to be aware of is that it will often ripen somewhat green, so check for aroma, softness and peelability to know when they are ready.

Hawaiʻi Banana Source

Hawaiʻi Banana Source runs its operations at Counter Culture Organic Farm on the North Shore of Oʻahu and is managed by Gabriel Sachter-Smith. Hawaiʻi Banana Source delivers its goods locally and also shares its vast banana knowledge with a global audience.

Gabriel grew up in the mountains of Colorado where he began studying bananas at the age of 14. Continuing his informal studies throughout high school, he moved to Hawaiʻi in 2007 to attend the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa where he earned his BS in Tropical Plant and Soil Sciences in 2011, and his MS in 2015. During his time at the university, he helped to start and eventually run the Student Organic Farm Training (SOFT) program for 5 years where he gained hands-on experience in growing and marketing a wide variety of crops.
