As for the taste, I must say it's very similar to the DB/"Apple Bananas" I've purchased when in Hawaii. Was expecting to be disappointed, but I gotta say I like 'em.
Did you take a photo of the bunch? How many hands, fingers and how heavy was it?
And why were you expecting to be disappointed? I have not seen any negative taste reports about Raja Puri yet
I think it seems OK for a fruit bunch to fill in and ripen in 9+ month here in Soutnern California over the winter. I am still waiting for my Ice Cream to show some signs of yellow. First hand also appeared in September 2013..
