Miami Fruit

Organically Grown Gros Michel Banana

  • Gros Michel bananas were, until the 1950s, the main banana variety grown throughout the world, until much of the global crop was devastated by disease.  Now the famous variety is back in limited quantities.  Many say this super sweet variety tastes similar to the banana candy you grew up with, as most banana candies were developed in the 1950s to mimic the flavor of the Gros Michel.  Needless to say they are super rare AND delicious.
  • Our bananas are ripe when they are soft to the touch (color of the skin is not a reliable indicator)
  • Harvested by Miami Fruit based in Homestead, Florida, and organically grown by small local farms in the area
  • Each order contains approximately 1.5 lbs of bananas
