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.
