Indian Bananas are quite unlike those found anywhere else. They come in many different varieties both large and small.
The colour of the skin varies and may be bright green to golden yellow. The fruit is yellowish in colour with a slight greenish tinge and is highly nutritious. The fruits appear in a bunch consisting of a number of halfspirals of fruit, which are clearly separated from each other. The skin is easily peeled off to reveal the edible flesh.
Because of its high nutritive value and very characteristic flavour, the banana is widely used for direct consumption or mixed into daily food.
