Banana Lacatan (1.75kg per hand)
Why do we use this product?
- Lacatan has a bright, highly saturated yellow hue. Its flesh, too, takes on a distinct yellow-to-orange color, and carries a balanced taste that has just the right amounts of sweet, slightly tangy, and custardy. Texture-wise it is moist but provides a substantial bite—one that is more moist and denser than Cavendish yet less chewy than Saba, and yields a creaminess when bitten. If you’re into freezing bananas for smoothies or nice cream, these make for an especially sludgy, dense texture when blended.
