Anybody have any experience or tasting notes on this banana? I got it when I ordered the Ice cream banana.

Excellent tasting banana, Some people dont like it because they try it before it really gets ripe. Just wait a few days after it looks ripe before you eat it. It has a hint of tartness thus the apple flavor. For me a much more reliable producer than Ice Cream.

Thanks, just what I was looking for in an answer to my question. I found a couple of over references to waiting till they are ripe. What color are they when fully ripe? Is the texture firm?

Thanks

When you think they are ripe compared to a regular store bought banana wait a few days. I wait for them to start falling off the stalk almost if you want them sweet.

When we were down in South Florida a few weekends back, we stopped at the Redland Market Village on our way back to look at the produce. Some of the vendors had apple bananas for sale. I picked up some to try because I have them growing in my yard but have not got any fruit from them yet. The girlfriend and I both tried them when we got home later. The GF really liked them as they were, I thought they were ok (ripe like store bought bananas). I knew they needed to sit on the counter for a few more days for best taste. Had the rest about 4 days later, much, much better.
Like rednofl says "falling off the stalk".
The GF liked them so much, that I tell her I have a Raja Puri putting out fruit and that the Grand Nain is getting ready to flower, her reply is "I want the apple bananas".

We tried Mysore bananas in homestead and were shocked at the flavor. I bought that plant that day.
