THIS VARIETY IS less caloric than regular (Cavendish) bananas, and has more fiber, vitamin C and protein. Measuring 2 to 4 inches in length, it has a thin, yellow peel, and a white, silky, and sweet pulp – hence the fact it is often used in Brazil to feed infants. It can be eaten fresh or used in cakes, pies and smoothies. Also known in English as latundan, manzano and silk banana.
