Default Finest flavour banana

I would like to ask the members of this forum who have had the opportunity to sample different bananas, which they thought had the finest flavour? And why?

Cassie

I haven't tasted a LOT but of the 10 or so I have, I like Red Iholene and Raja Puri best so far. Ice Cream is up there too. These have a really noticible different taste. Dwarf Cav, Double Moahi, Misi Luki, most FHIA's all are about the same to me with just a hint of difference. Dwarf Orinoco are OK but nothing to rave about. BUT the great thing is they all taste better then store bought.

While I wait for my apple, icecream and ladyfinger to grow, I thought this thread would help me to draw up my wish list and decide what to go for next, as I am primarily interested in fruit. Dwarf Cav I know as that has fruited for me, and the other local varieties I have are also still too small to bloom.

I will put Red Iholene and Raja Puri on my list.

Thanks
Cassie

i spent hours on line last nite going over the different bananas they have on the list. go to encanto farms and you can review almost everything on the "list". i have narrowed my search to 3 types of banana, that way when i win, ill know which one i want.

I haven't really sampled tons of varieties either (maybe 20 or so), its rather difficult when you can't grow them. But of those, one of my favorite has been Mysore.

thats the truth. its people like that who are giving and care about others to make it even possible to tolorate the people who arent. and i have found that there are a lot of giving and caring people on this forum. and at first i was really skeptical. im not gonna mention any names but, these people know who they are. they have answered questions for me and gone way out of their way for me. and for that i say thank you. i always try to remember that, what you do in this life will come back to you. it doesnt matter if its good or bad, it comes back. thats why i always try to treat people with respect, dignity, and friendship. i say KUDOS to you and thanks.

In the tropics where I grew up there is one banana that is served only during special occasion because of its beauty and taste are so remarkable.
I never saw it mentioned here maybe because it can not be grown in semi tropic region.
It is called 'lacatan'. It is one of the best tasting banana I have ever tasted.

Encanto Farms have it listed and spell it as "lacatan" and "lakatan" and they say it is delicious, so maybe one of these is yours? The first is from Jamaica and the second from the Philippines.
