Mountain bananas, they taste good and are good for you

You might not have heard of the mountain banana but it is supposed to have many health benefits and some even call it a superfood. These fruits contain not only vitamins A and C but also proteins like coconuts and avocados and not many other fruits. They are also a source of magnesium, calcium and potassium.

Its scientific name is Asimina triloba, It is called mountain banana because it is resistant to low temperatures and because its fruit has a flavour similar to that of bananas. Not a very tall tree but its leaves , are, on the other hand, very wide and can reach 30 cm in length.

The fruit comes from the flowers, they have an irregular oval shape, they might be as long as 20 cm, but they don’t really look like bananas. The skin is colour light green / yellow, smooth and not very thick.

They are ripe, generally, in the second half of August; between September and October, when they are soft and give off a very pleasant intense perfume.

The pulp is yellow and creamy and, in some cases, it might have some orangey hues; its seeds are large and brown.

The mountain banana is one of the most versatile fruits in the world. It can be eaten raw or cooked, and it can be used in a wide range of desserts, from ice cream to jam. The fruit’s texture is creamy and its flavour is sweet with a slight tang.
