The banana tree or "Musa sp” has its origins in South East Asia. From its place of origin it started its long journey towards all the tropical and subtropical regions of the worldAround 500 AD it travelled to Africa via Madagascar and in the 6th century it established itself on the Mediterranean coasts, arriving in the Canary Islands from Guinea by way of the Portuguese conquests in Africa. It is believed that from the Canary Islands the Spanish took the banana to America.
This is a small yellow banana with specks but a flavour that is unbeatable, and is appreciated by consumers worldwide. Its shape is long and the peel is yellow in colour which, depending on the variety, shows its degree of ripeness. According to its ripeness, the flavour can be more or less intense. Once peeled, the pulp of the Canary Island banana takes on a whitish or almost yellow colour, depending on the variety. Its compact texture, although very soft, has an exquisite flavour which is what makes it a unique and highly regarded fruit.
