Banana

almost all year

Florida bananas are so much better than the grocery store bananas. Ours bananas are moist, have a delicate texture, and have hints of strawberries and citrus and other subtle flavors. Our growers also raise plantains, which have a lower sugar content than the dessert bananas, and they make wonderful tostones and fried plantanos.
