Share |


Red bananas are a variety of banana with reddish-purple skin. They are plumper than the common yellow banana and have cream to light pink colored flesh when ripe. In addition, they are sweeter and softer than yellow bananas having a raspberry-banana flavor. Red bananas have more carotene and Vitamin C than the yellow banana cousin. They can be eaten raw, added to desserts or salads, baked, fried, or toasted. Choose bananas that are deep in color and store at room temperature until slightly soft.
