Small, Medium, Large Bananas!
December 18, 2015 6:13pm CST
Bananas are the most popular fruits in the world! My family’s favorite fruits are bananas, oranges, grapes, and avocados. Bananas are good source of potassium, providing a powerful protection to our cardiovascular system, calcium, vitamin V6 and many more. Here are the 3 most popular varieties: 1. The Mini Banana (bottom) – It is smoother and creamier than the larger varieties. It is sweeter and evokes a floral scent. And the size is just perfect for a mini snack. Sometimes I find the larger varieties too much for a quick, small snack. 2. The Cavendish Banana (middle) – This is the most popular variety sold in grocery stores. It belongs to the so-called cultivar group of bananas. It is not as sweet as the mini variety; but it is the favorite snack of most athletes like those professional tennis players – male and female. 3. The Plantain banana (top) – This is one of the largest varieties. This variety cannot be eaten raw; it has to be cooked. I usually boil them for few minutes, peel them, sprinkle them with brown sugar, roll them with springroll wrappers, and fry them moderately. Kids love it! Young ladies and even grandmas love it, too! So, which of the three you love to eat - the small, medium, or large?! Image is taken from by my camera.

I didn't even know that there were different varieties. I've never tried the plantain. We always have bananas in the house as my husband finds them the perfect accompianment when he has to take his pills. The smaller ones are best for that.

There is a dish here that makes good use of big banana. It is basically to deep fry the banana. You have to add some flour to cover up the peeled whole banana and then deep fried it. I seldom have this. I prefer to take the ripe banana, peel it, and then put in freezer. I can eat it like ice cream.
