Red bananas are available year round from Central and South America.
The Red banana has several names, depending on its growing region, including the Red Spanish, Red Cuban, Colorado or Lal kela. It is a vigorous, highly resistant grower, producing bunches with up to one hundred fruits.
Shorter, plumper and heartier than the average banana, the Red banana is the most sought after "alternative" banana variety available in the US. When ripe it will have a thick maroon to red peel and pink-salmon hued flesh. Its flavor is sweet and creamy with raspberry highlights.
The Red banana has more beta carotene and vitamin C than the yellow banana varieties. Bananas also contain three natural sugars: sucrose, fructose, and glucose, making them a source of instant and sustainable energy.
Although a ripe Red banana can be great for fresh-eating, this variety is preferred as a baking variety for both desserts and semi-savory dishes. Try sliced, sprinkled with warm spices and roasted. Fry as you would plantains or add to curries. Red bananas can be used in lieu of traditional bananas in baked recipes such as breads, muffins and cakes. To store keep at room temperature until ready to use.
Originating in India and southern Asia, Red bananas also grow in other banana-friendly growing regions within the tropics and subtropics. Rare red varieties flourish in Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the Pacific Islands. Producing bright red foliage, Red banana plants are a vivid landscape visual, growing semi-wild along roadsides in tropical countries.
