Packing Details

Vacuum packing is a method of packaging that removes air from the package prior to sealing. Shrink film is sometimes used to have a tight fit to the contents. Vacuum packing reduces atmospheric oxygen, limiting the growth of aerobic bacteria or fungi, and preventing the evaporation of volatile components.

Description


FRESH BURRO BANANA 

The Burro Banana is occasionally sold under the name chunky banana as it is stubbier and more of a square shape than the common banana. Its peel is a rich, vivid, dark green that turns deep yellow with characteristic black spots when ripe. When young, the flesh of the Burro banana is tart and tangy with notes of apple and lime.

As the fruit matures, the yellow flesh is soft on the outside with a slightly crisp textured center. A ripe Burro banana’s flavor is creamy sweet with lemon undertones.

Burro bananas are available year-round.

Applications

Burro bananas are known as a dual-purpose variety. They can be enjoyed fresh when fully ripe or used green as a plantain. Burro bananas can be used in both sweet and savory preparations. Most savory preparations are within Thai, Filipino, Indian, Latin and Caribbean cuisines. Complimentary pairings include cream, chiles, pork, chicken, black beans, limes, bright fruits such as berries and pineapple and nuts such as cashews and pepitas. To delay ripening, refrigerate. To hasten to ripen, place in a paper bag and keep at room temperature.

Burro bananas are mainly grown in Mexico. Aptly named because their stubby stature is reminiscent of that of a donkey or burro. While they have a variety of culinary uses, they have also been used to stimulate hemoglobin in cases of anemia.

The true origins of wild bananas are to be found within regions of Southeast Asia. Trade routes would bring cultivated varieties of bananas to the New World. Burro bananas are native to Central America with cultivated origins in Mexico. The Burro banana is considered a superior growing variety because it is very vigorous and produces hardy wind-resistant foliage.
