The apple banana is small, sweet, easy to peel, and, at their best, completely irresistible – a true 5 Star fruit. However, although they are imported into the UK, they rarely reach our supermarkets – you are more likely to find them in ethnic corner shops. The Bananito is similar, grown in countries such as Columbia and Ecuador, and while still an excellent fruit does not have quite the exquisite flavour.
Origin: Apple banana is the same as Latundan banana, which originated in the Philippines.
Grown in: Uganda, Tanzania, Philippines
