Nutrition

Dietary Fiber supports heart health Vitamin C supports a healthy immune system Vitamin B6 supports energy metabolism
Currently the USDA does not distinguish between banana varieties. Therefore the only reliable nutrition information we have to share is from the Cavendish banana. Like the traditional Cavendish, these too deliver vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Potassium and Fiber. Due to differences in color and texture we can expect modest differences.

Pick

How do you pick ripe red bananas?

Unlike most bananas that are harvested green, like their name suggests the Red Banana variety are harvested in a reddish-green hue and ripen during and after shipping. Red Bananas, when ripe, should have a purplish hue. Choose slightly firm Red Bananas and avoid bruises or cracks.

Prepare

How do you prepare red bananas?

Red bananas are often eaten as a snack out of hand. Their creamy white-pink flesh makes them a unique addition when sliced into salad.

Storage

How do you store red bananas?

If bananas are not yet ripe, let them ripen naturally at room temperature until soft, turning occasionally.
