Grown mostly in Southeast Asia and Hawaii, Blue Java Bananas are increasingly popular. Bananas are popular world-over for being extremely nutritious. Still, a new variety of bananas is being talked-about these days. Blue Java Bananas are said to have a bluish tint and a creamy texture. But it is not only their unique colour and texture, the bananas apparently taste like vanilla.
However, these bananas are quite rare and are not found everywhere. They are primarily grown in the Southeast Asian region but are also quite well-known in Hawaii.
Indianexpress.com reports that The fruits are a hybrid of two other kinds of bananas, namely Musa balbisiana and Musa acuminata. The fruit is cold tolerant and can grow even at temperatures below freezing point. But the ideal temperature for their growth is 40oF (4oC). When these bananas are ripe, they generally have a pale yellow colour.
