Default 5 different varieties of banana at phx market

To all banana lovers in and around the Phoenix area. I just got back from the Super L Ranch Market at 668 N 44st. They have 5 different kinds of banana as of this morning. I bought Burros for .59lb, Manzanos for $1.49lb, and Baby (ladyfinger?) for $1.29lb. They also had plantains and regulars but I dont recall those prices. This place has many other exotic fruit such as Dragon fruit $5.99lb, jujube, longan, lytchee, guava, etc. . The rest of the store is just as interesting. Went there for canned loquat because I have never tried it and now have a small loquat tree. Well when I got into that produce section I forgot about the loquat until just now lol. I have not been posting here for very long and I dont know if this kind of post is improper or not, please feel free to offer advice. Also the store cannot be seen from 44st, it is in a big strip mall called the Chinese Cultural center that backs up to 44st.

Cool! I can get Manzano's at the local Fiesta stores here most of the time. Kroger sometimes carries some of the baby bananas and some type of red in addition to the normal Cavendish and plantains.

Baby bananas are Oritos, from the Sucrier family. I like them a lot.
