When I came back to Japan, I saw a small bunch of bananas called "banapple" because the banana was supposed to taste like an apple.
Since I saw this "banapple" at the department store, you can imagine how much they wanted for this.
This got me thinking that apple bananas have got to be out there somewhere in Japan.
You should know that in Hawaii, the apple banana can be found in all of our markets.
In my family, it is the most popular. It is slightly sweet, a little tart, firm and lasts way longer than the "normal" banana.
So, the other day at the supermarket I was checking out the bananas...and came upon this...
"Shima no megumi" means bounty of the island...since it looked the senorita banana, which we tried previously, I debated about buying the shima no megumi...
I'm glad I did though because this variety is very very close to the apple bananas we get in Hawaii.
Our weather is all funky...sunny one day, rainy the next then super freeze-a the next.
I think we're gonna skip over autumn and go straight into winter, which is kinda sad because I really like autumn...how's the weather where you are?
