Banana Manzano or Apple banana
The exquisite Musa acuminata × M. balbisiana (AAB Group) 'Silk', commonly known as Plátano Manzano or Apple Banana, is a botanical gem characterized by its limited production and its mostly regional or national distribution. This unique banana variant, despite facing challenges in crop management and vulnerability to disease, is distinguished by its exceptionally delicious flavor, with a distinctive nuance reminiscent of apples.
Harvesting this fruit requires optimal care to preserve the quality and aesthetics of its delicate rind, which presents an attractive pale yellow color when ripe. Emphasis is placed on its consumption being at its most mature point to fully appreciate its unique flavor, which places it in a high range of appetite for gourmets.
The production of the Plátano Manzano is located in the Peruvian high jungle region, between 500 and 2,000 meters above sea level, similar to its close cousin, the Baby Banana or Banana Bizcochito. This growing environment offers optimal conditions for the development of these fruits, which contributes to their unique flavor and premium quality.
We guarantee that our Manzano Banana is grown naturally and organically, under a rigorous internationally certified chain of custody. These high standards are ensured through a Global GAP certification, which guarantees the integrity and sustainability of each stage of our production.
The Plátano Manzano is an incomparable taste experience and a testament to our dedication to quality and authenticity. We invite you to discover and enjoy the culinary wealth that this variety of banana can offer.
