Mini Banana

07-Feb-2008
 
 

 
 
My local Central Market carries a wide array of fruits and vegetables, including items you can’t find anywhere else in town.  Their produce section is housed in what used to be an entire store.  The place is huge.  I’ve been eyeing their large banana selection for quite a while and this last weekend picked up a few miniature bananas that are reported to be super sweet.  They are so cute!  Just 4 or 5 inches long.  This variety was yellow.  The first one I ate was still a bit green and seemed like any other green banana to me, with one exception.  The flesh seemed more dense than normal. 
 
I let the bananas ripen more before eating the next one.  This one was very sweet – in fact, so sweet that it tastes more of sugar than banana! And again, the fruit seems very dense.  It’s almost like a regular banana was compressed to remove any bit of air or space.  I like them as a nice little treat.  Just a four or five bite snack.

    HI THERE,
    I TRIED THESE LITTLE BANNANAS AND THEY ARE VERY GOOD AND SMOOTH, VELVETY AND A BIT DENSER – JUST A LITTLE DIFFERENT TO MAKE IT WORTH THE PURCHASE.  NOW I\’LL HAVE TO GO IN SEARCH OF TINY WATERMELLONS!
    I JUST POSTED A RECENT ENTRY ABOUT PERSIAN SHISH KABOBS…..IT FOCUSES ALSO ABOUT THE PERSIAN NEW YEAR (TOMORROW) AND A COUSINS\’ WEDDING.
     
    I WELCOME YOU TO MY SPACE.
    GOOD DAY TO YOU!
