Blue Java bananas, also known as "ice cream bananas" or "blue bananas," are a unique and distinctive variety of banana known for their appearance, taste, and versatility in culinary applications.

  • Color: Blue Java bananas are typically recognized for their silvery-blue to pale blue skin when unripe. As they ripen, the skin turns silver-green and eventually a pale yellow.
  • Shape and Size: They are medium-sized bananas, similar in size to the more common Cavendish banana. The fruit is usually curved, elongated, and slightly plump.
  • Desserts: Blue Java bananas are commonly used in desserts due to their sweet, creamy nature.
  • Fried or Grilled: Some culinary enthusiasts enjoy frying or grilling Blue Java bananas for a delightful caramelized flavor.

Blue Java cooking bananas, also known as Hawaiian bananas or Maoli-Popo'ulu, are a starchy variety of banana with a mild, nutty flavor. Unlike their sweet dessert counterparts, Blue Java cooking bananas are best used when they are green or slightly yellow and firm to the touch. They are commonly used in savory dishes such as stews, curries, and fried snacks. These bananas are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. They are a great alternative to traditional potatoes and other starchy vegetables and add a unique flavor and texture to any dish they are used in.
