We loved our small box of Gros Michel bananas. The small box was the perfect size to share a few with neighbors and enjoy ourselves. The flavor was so sweet. We ate as fruit and also to bake in banana bread. Beautifully sweet flavor. Miami Fruit packed the bananas with the best of care and arrived in perfect condition. We will most definitely buy again.
Always wanted to eat the species of (Gros Michel) that my grandparents&parents used to eat. Now there is only (Cavendish) in production? Not the same !!! Thank you "MIAMI FRUITS" for these delicious sweet,,velvety,, non-slimy !!! Whole Family Loved Them!!!
I purchased this is a birthday gift for a friend who has always wanted to try Gros Michele bananas. Placed the order on his birthday and sent him a message letting him know it was coming. Took a while for the bananas to come back in season and be collected but he got a fun surprise when they arrived! They were a little green, so he had plenty of time to eat the large order we sent. He said they were creamier and richer and more "banana-ey" than any banana he's ever eaten! Definitely would recommend this!
Arrived promptly. Ripened a bit faster than I expected, but quite sweet and not at all starchy.
Better than the Cavendish, but not as good as I hoped, service always awesome and shipping speed is great
It was a good experience purchasing from you guys. I will definitely purchase again.
Other than a couple of weird bananas that ripened unevenly, this was a fantastic experience. The small box came with a couple fully ripe and with the rest selected so I could have bananas for more than just a day or two. And the flavor! I've never tasted such sweet bananas, or bananas that have a complex velvet flavor. I couldn't get through all of them so I took the last three that were very ripe, cut them up, and froze them. I'm using the bananas in the best smoothies ever.
delicious and worth the wait. tastes like candy.
I admit I didn't know what to expect when placing my first order from Miami Fruit for some Gros Michel Bananas.
As promised, they were delivered, although a bit smaller than I pictured, they were fantastic. My entire team enjoyed them and can clearly tell the difference in taste from the now traditional banana.
We will definitely be making future orders from Miami Fruit.
Great flavor and ripened at different times so nothing went bad!!!
We absolutely loved the Gros Michels! What a treat. Great service, cool packaging - looking forward to another order.
The box of bananas arrived in good shape, with two hands of bananas at different stages of ripeness. It was fascinating to taste a Gros Michel; it felt like time travel.
These are the best bananas I have ever eaten! I am amazed at the flavor of these bananas. They arrived in perfect condition, and ripened at different times, so I was able to enjoy all of them without any going bad. I just ordered again!
The bananas tasted great and I will be placing another order for far more. However, the only gripe I had was that I was sent some really small bananas. Every review and picture I looked at mentioned that these were the same size or bigger than a Cavendish. These were not. Perhaps it was due to me purchasing the small box, so that could be my misunderstanding of why the small size. With all that said, I'd still order another, bigger box with the same sized bananas. THEY WERE PHENOMENAL!
Excellent fruits & services
These are the best bananas ever. Perfect for banana cream pie.
Love the classic old school gros michel banana that is far superior in taste and shelf life compared to the modern Cavendish variety you buy at the grocery store.
I work in the produce industry. I like the history and the idea of a banana being from a time before me. I ordered the Gros Michel banana (big mike) and they were not at all what I imagined. They were smaller than I expected both in the size of the box “large” and on the size of the banana. Many were bruised and scarred and general unappealing to the eye.
While I understand that taste is not generally reflective of the look, I tried them. The taste was a little different and the novelty was great and the history behind it was mind blowing.
Would I order again, or something different? Probably not. Would I recommend it to a friend? I would. But I would immediately tell them to set their standards low.
The gros michel bananas arrived in great condition and were ready to eat in 2-3 days. Perfect timing!
Ordered some Gros Michel and really enjoyed the bananas with the family for a unique experience. Everything was handled smoothly.
Great bananas. Definitely a different flavor than your typical store bought mass produced bananas, in a good way. The more ripe they get, the more they taste different than the usual.
Enjoyed the opportunity to taste the bananas from the past, definitely better than a cavendish.
It's not debatable. These are better than the bananas you are used to. They smell better, are more pungent, more flavorful.
Delicious! It's really cool to get to try the famed bananas of yesteryear. Will be sure to try more exotics from Miami Fruits!
The flavor is complex and sweet. I haven't tasted a banana this good in the United States for over 20 years.
Absolutely wonderful! We had friends over and had banana splits. I now know why I don't care for bananas when I used to love them when I was younger. I actually thought that somehow our bananas now weren't ripening enough. And the banana splits was the perfect way to enjoy them. This is something I might do again for special occasions. Do wish they were available in our grocery store. Our friends couldn't believe the difference in taste.
Took a few days to ripen to perfection. Once they are soft and ready I peeled back the beautiful banana skin and tasted such an impeccable banana flavor. A bit sweeter and a bit creamier than your average store bought ‘Nana.
Cannot wait to make bananas fosters.
Also excited to share a bite of banana with my backyard squirrel to see how she loves it. Thanks!
Thanks so much!
These banana had great flavor!
I got a couple of these bananas that ripened quickly enough and they were wonderful. Only down side is waiting for rest to ripen. Other than that, this is a real treat. I’ve already ordered another batch. This time the Java blues.
