World's Biggest Banana?



Biggest Banana In The World


Could this be the world's biggest banana? At around 14 inches, it's gotta be a contender.

I found these beauties hanging from the cart of a vendor in Chanthaburi, Thailand. The Thais call them "Kluay," like "Glueayyy". A few people I've talked to think they're called rhino bananas or rhino horn plantains in English.

The vendor pretty much just likes to fry them, but I convinced her to sell me a few. The price was 15 bhat per banana, or about $0.50 US.

Usually I can buy an entire hand of 3-5 inches bananas for 10-15 bhat, or pay the same price for two or three hands of overripe (Read: perfect) bananas. Each of these ranged in size between 12 and 14.5 inches.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much in the taste department. I've had far too many interesting-looking bananas that turned out to be similar to the generic Cavendish you find in every supermarket in the US, but I was so wrong.

These things have the consistency of cookie dough and are super sweet. I was pretty impressed with the taste, and I'd definitely pay to get them again. Below I've posted a video of my reaction when I first tasted them.
