I recently tried a Williams type banana at a farmer's market... I think the gran nain tastes sweeter...
Dwarf Brazilians, better known here as apple bananas. They are the best bananas that I have eaten in Hawaii. Way better than Williams and Gran Nain. You have to wait until they have brown spots to have them in their prime. At that point they are sweet, acidic and creamy. 8-10 feet tall. They also seem have some delayed resistance to BBTV.
