Hopa bananas tend to vary in size and shape but are generally a cylindrical shape with blunt curved ends. This variety is edible in both the green unripe and ripened yellow stages. There is a line of black seeds down the center of the flesh.  When green, these bananas have a starchy and firm texture.  When matured and yellow, Hopa bananas become softer and tender with a sweeter taste.  Hopa Bananas are a great source of dietary fiber, potassium, Vitamins C, K and A, and other micronutrients.


Ripening and Storage: 

Store at room temperature for up to one week to fully ripen for fresh consumption. Can be frozen for up to 6 months. 

 

Suggested Uses: 

In their green, unripe stage, these bananas can be cooked to create a sweet and mild flavor with the consistency similar to a potato.  As the fruit ripens, the peel turns golden yellow with dark spots.  At this point, the Hopa banana can be eaten raw as you would with a regular banana.
