what are Manzano Bananas?

aka. Apple Bananas, aka. Finger Bananas. not to be confused with mini bananas- Aside from being the cutest thing in the world they have a distinctive taste ! They are much SWEETER & have an infusion of appleish- strawberryish taste ! with a slight crunch- so yummy & exotic.
