Grown in Australia
What and Where Bananas, considered native to South-East Asia, are one the oldest known fruits. Large bananas are a variety call Cavendish – one of the most popular in Australia. All our large, Cavendish bananas come from Queensland but we don’t buy from one particular grower; we choose who’s ever bunches look the best on the day.
Texture Moist and firm
Use Bananas can of course be used in lots of different sweet dishes but we think they are best suited to creating baked treats like banana muffins, banana bread, banana pancakes and banana fritters.
Cooking Tip If a banana or two becomes over ripe pop them in the freezer – they’ll be perfect for baking with.
Selection and Storage Remember that if a banana is firm all over but has some dark markings on the skin these indicate that it is merely very ripe, not that it is past its best. Remember too to keep bananas separate from other fruit, vegetables and flowers as the ethylene gas they release accelerates ripening. Finally, don’t forget the paper bag trick; pop a banana in a paper bag, seal it, place it somewhere warm, and the banana will ripen further.
