About Red Bananas:

Red bananas, which are grown in tropical and subtropical regions of Asia and the Americas. These bananas are smaller and plumper than yellow bananas. Red bananas should have a deep red, reddish purple, or maroon rind when ripe. They are best eaten when unbruised (as they get mushy) and slightly soft. The redder the fruit, the more carotene and the higher the vitamin C level. The ripe, raw red bananas have a flesh that is cream to light pink in color.

They are also softer and somewhat sweeter than the yellow varieties, with a slight raspberry-banana flavor. As with yellow bananas, red bananas will ripen in a few days at room temperature and are best stored outside refrigeration, but we have found that once they are ripe they should be stored in the refrigerator to prevent spoiling. The main drawback to purchasing them on a regular basis is that they usually sell for premium prices of 2 to 3 times the price of yellow bananas, and to us, the flavor difference does not justify the price difference. We could not find any specific nutritional information for these bananas.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
