going bananas

Back home, I ate an apple banana with peanut butter everyday. If you've never had an apple banana before, you are missing out on the Best Bananas. They're sweet, slightly tangy and firm; none of that mushy crap. I refused to eat any other banana variety, even if they were cheaper by the pound. When I lived in Oregon for a year, I got used to eating 'regular' bananas, though never by itself (that's just gross). I always kept my eye out for apple bananas, thinking that I'd stumble across a booth at a farmer's market selling these short, fat bunches.

After a few years (and lots of apple banana gorging at home in Hawai'i) I'm living in New York City and am pretty certain that I will never come across an apple banana on this side of the continent. I still eat a banana with peanut butter everyday (I'm so predictable when it comes to breakfast), but it's just the regular kind.

UNTIL NOW:

Two weeks ago, Holly's parents mailed us not one, but THREE, bunches of apple bananas from Hawai'i!


They made sure to buy them extra green, so they wouldn't be brown by the time they arrived in New York.

No matter, because apple bananas are awesome in all forms of color. You can eat them green, yellow or browned.



How I missed their slightly pink insides.


The last two.

Now, it's time to return to normal living.

When I lived in Hawaii I also ate them every day...I miss apple bananas sooo much. Now I live in Taiwan and they have these tiny bananas that LOOK like apple bananas, but inside they are just like regular gross bananas. It is such a tease. Sigh.
