Bananas are easy to eat, great to cook with, and have a mellow, creamy flavor that still suggests tropical sun.
In Season: The banana's peak season is January through April, but the fruit is available year-round in supermarkets.
What to look For: Choose plump, evenly colored yellow bananas flecked with tiny brown specks (a sign of ripeness). Avoid those with
Blemishes, which usually indicate bruising.
How to Store: Ripe bananas can be stored in the refrigerator for several days. The peel will turn brown but the flesh will remain
Bananas are the most popular fresh fruit in the United States. They have a peel that comes off easily, they ripen after they've been
rank fourth after rice, wheat and maize in human consumption; they are grown in 130 countries worldwide, more than for any other fruit
crop. Bananas are native to tropical southeastern Asia.
Bananas are a valuable source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and potassium.
The four leading banana exporter countries were Ecuador, Costa Rica, Philippines, and Colombia; accounted for about two
thirds of the worlds exports; with each exporting more than 1 million tons. Ecuador alone provided more than 30% of global banana

Bananas are classified either as dessert bananas (meaning they are yellow and fully ripe when eaten) or as green cooking Bananas and plantains constitute a major staple food crop for millions of people in developing countries. In most tropical countries
green (unripe) bananas used for cooking represent the main cultivars. Cooking bananas are very similar to potatoes in how they are
used. Both can be fried, boiled, baked or chipped and have similar taste and texture when served. Nutritionally one green cooking
banana has about the same nutritional and calorie content as one potato.
The vast majority of producers are small-scale farmers growing the crop either for home consumption or for local markets. Because
bananas and plantains will produce fruit year-round, they provide an extremely valuable source of food during the hunger season (that
period of time when all the food from the previous harvest has been consumed, and the next harvest is still some time away). It is for
these reasons that bananas and plantains are of major importance to food security.
List of banana dishes
This is a list of banana dishes in which banana or plantain is used as a primary ingredient. Foods prepared with banana or plantain as
a primary ingredient are also included in this list. A banana is an edible fruit produced by several kinds of large herbaceous
flowering plants in the genus Musa. (In some countries, bananas used for cooking may be called plantains.) The fruit is variable in
size, color and firmness, but is usually elongated and curved, with soft flesh rich in starch covered with a rind which may be green,
yellow, red, purple, or brown when ripe. The fruits grow in clusters hanging from the top of the plant.
