These look really interesting, and yummy! I’ve never tasted red bananas, but my husband, who lived in Peru, says they are common there.
Red Bananas are shorter, plumper, and heartier than their yellow cousins, with a sweeter flavor that hints at raspberry. These creamy, sweet bananas have a rosy, brick-red peel and an ivory colored semi-soft flesh, and they are preferred for baking desserts, and eating fresh from the peel when ripe.
Red Bananas were orginally native to India and Southeast Asia, but trade routes have brought them to other, similar sub-tropical regions. They now flourish in Mexico, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the Pacific Islands as well.
Not only are Red Bananas sweeter and creamier than their yellow cousins, they also contain more beta-carotene and vitamin C than yellow bananas, too. In addition to these beneficial nutrients, red bananas are a great source for vitamin A, iron, vitamin B6, and potassium.
Smaller, softer, creamier, and sweeter than yellow bananas, and with a flavor that has been described as both “banana-raspberry”, and “banana-strawberry” – the red banana just can’t be beat!
