Red banana

We have seen a variety of bananas but mostly they are yellow in colour. There is also another variety of banana that is red in colour ( a reddish-purple skin ) . These types of bananas are quite similar to the yellow ones we eat. Only its little softer and sweeter with a raspberry-banana flavor . They are generally imported from Costa-rica to USA and are little stouter and plumper ( In India, though , we get red bananas that are about 8 inches and above) than the ordinary yellow bananas we normally consume. These red bananas can be eaten exactly like the yellow ones and these types of bananas are mostly used for preparing those snacks and foods that requires the banana to fried ,baked or roasted.
