Bananas are extremely versatile. They can be eaten out of hand, baked or added to fruit salads and desserts. Similar to the well-known Cavendish banana, the Burro Banana is flatter, smaller and more square, yet just as versatile. 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. ... A ripe Burro banana's flavor is creamy sweet with lemon undertones.
