This was my very first banana box and frankly I was concerned I was just getting expensive green bananas. However! They ripened up beautifully and the differences between the various types included were marvelous, delicious and so different.
Totally worth it!
A banana extravaganza!
Various shapes, colors and tastes. all good
Most delicious bananas
it was great. It would be nice if the bananas had the name written directly on them
Awesome tasting bananas!
Thank you so much
I got the small banana variety box as a birthday gift for my husband, and he loved it! We got 5 different varieties of bananas (12 bananas total) and thought 4 of the 5 were absolutely delicious. Never want to eat a regular banana again.
My family absolutely loves bananas and this banana box was a lovely treat for us. Each new type of banana we tried was an exciting adventure. Somewhere very flavorful and tasty and others were really good for cooking. Even made a banana fosters with the orinoco's. Now we're craving more. Definitely worth it. Thank you!
Bananas came as expected. Customer service helped me identify the varieties. Would order again.
Wish that the items could be identified by name.
Well-packaged and arrived within 3 days to Michigan. Good mix of fruit (image shows only a few bananas) at various ripening stages. I roasted a few of the variety unripe over hot coals and had nice starch side. Those small flat square bananas are fantastic.
Interesting varieties, some very slow to ripen. I enjoy the new flavors.
I cannot believe how much flavor these bananas have! I feel like I was lied to my whole life about bananas until I found Miami Fruit! I can never buy bananas from the grocery store again.
There's so much variety in the box, and I'm sure that there are varietals that you could never get at the store. I asked my kids what they thought of these bananas, and they said if all bananas tasted as good as these they'd eat them :)
Our box was quickly shipped and well packed.
Do yourself a favor and buy these!!
I really enjoyed trying the new and exotic banana's. I just wished I knew what banana was what. The only thing I can report with 100% certainty is that some were big and some were small all were delicious. I was delighted by all the complex banana flavors. The cavandish feels so plain and boring now.
Made 6 loaves of Banana bread! Everyone loved it. We are out our home town a lot in the summer so when we finally picked up our delivery they were ready for banana bread.
Bananas ripen at different times and that’s perfect. Interesting tastes. Still trying to figure out which is the one described as tasting like cookie dough!
My 2 & 3 year old grandsons cannot get enough of the Angie mangos! One lives in Dallas and I sent them a box. I got a call at least once if not twice a day with this "yellow gold"
dirty face to say "Thank you GaGa (that's me) for the mangos!" nothing better.
I thought we were to receive more varieties, I think we received 3. But all were delicious and I recommended the company.
Love these bananas, but as price is quite high not something I can justify more often. I wish you would do free shipping on your subscriptions again. The shipping really sets the already high price right over.
OMG most delicious bananas I've ever had! Seriously.
The banana variety was great and they were delicious. I only wish they would have given the names of the different types.
Like how creamy and savory bananas were. Only one little tiny finger banana never ripened and was unable to eat. Is getting on the waiting list the easiest way to try all varieties you grow?
Wow, what a selection! I may have only gotten a small box, but every variety had Big flavor. Each fruit was an experience in itself. As everything ripened at its own rate, it was flavorful fun for days.
I'm very disappointed. Oh, not in these bananas; the store bananas. After 2 boxes of Miami Fruit, store bananas are noticably bland and mushy. These bananas are like illicit narcotics. They suck you in with the promise of a fresh fruit high, and before you know it, you've hit rock bottom, selling your blood and organs on the black market for a bunch of nam-wahs or pisang rajas. CURSE YOU, MIAMI FRUIT!
As usual, the crew at Miami Fruit knocked a home run with their latest banana box. Containing an eclectic mix of amazing, different kinds, it was a terrific experience in every way. I always look forward to having these superb varieties in the house as I cannot even touch a grocery store one anymore!!
Keep up the good work!
Always a great experience with Miamifruit.org
Miami Fruit’s banana variety box was delightful, delicious, and worth every penny!
Got this as a present and the person loved it! It was nice to be able to send a snapshot and get the identification of the bananas when we weren’t sure which was which haha. Would order again!
Speedy service and the fruit was fresh and delicious!!
We look forward to the different bananas
Fast shipping and delicious fruit!
The large box was smaller than expected BUT my family and I loved trying the different varieties. Next time we order we’d love a list of the varieties.
While store bought bananas hit their prime ripeness for about 4.5 seconds before they become a mushy, slimy mess, these bananas were of perfect texture for days. And bonus, they all ripened at different times, letting my family enjoy them for weeks.
I'm loving the assorted bananas! I think my favorite has to be the Nam Wah, but they're all delicious. (I think I'm going to try making banana bread with some of them soon, now that I've tried them all raw!)
The banana variety box was good and an adventure to eat every banana had a different taste and unique texture. They were very substantial compared to the store-bought bananas. We had fun trying them. Thank you for such a wonderful gift from your orchards!!!
These bananas are supreme, I can no longer eat bananas from my local stores.
Such a cool experience getting to try different types of bananas I didn't know even existed until discovering Miami Fruits! The bananas were perfect and delicious, they emailed me back labeling which banana was which since I couldn't tell them apart. Looking forward to next month's delivery!
Delicious bananas. Especially loved the Orinoco variety.
I bought this for my daughter for a gift. She loved getting to try different varieties of bananas. She said the Orinoco was amazing.
Love your banana boxes!! One suggestion would be to label each variety in the box since there are definite favorites, but no way to know what they are. :) :)
The bananas were sent as a gift to my in-laws who were very pleased with the types they received. They weren't sure about the plantains but I gave them some ideas on how to us them.
Good banana variety. The trick is to let them ripen so that they are soft and the peels come off easily - then they’re ripe and really good!
I made banana bread out of some of the bananas, it was really good, the bananas are really tasty. I still have some left over that I have been eating & enjoying, its a nice box to get if you enjoy bananas.
Best ever experience
My kids are crazy over the variety of bananas
You definitely won't look at your "regular grocery store banana" the same ever again! I love this variety box. I added it to my monthly subscription because I had received some bananas in the regular variety box and had to try more. There are subtle nuances with texture and flavor. It's insane to me how much variety there is out there and I want to try it all!! Miami Fruit is absolutely amazing and I am so appreciative that I am able to experience these treasures.
Just got my box! So many fruits! Im really excited to find out what all I received! I am almost too excited to wait for them to ripen lol I got 80 bananas in the extra large box!
Amazing love it
Love getting fun fruits in the mail!! In the Midwest we don't get to see any variety so its a fun time. My kids and their friends get together on the weekend whenever a new shipment comes in and they enjoy trying EVERYTHING! Thank you for bringing this into our lives.
Can't wait to get the next box.
Another subscription that we have had on going for 2 years straight. Do I need to say more? The Banana variety box is great because we always get to sample the best bananas in season, with no complaints! We make smoothies everyday for us and our young ones and the bananas from Miami Fruit make our smoothies complete. Try freezing them as they will last a long time and are great in a variety of creations. Thank you Miami Fruit for the amazing service and for your outstanding fruit and practices!
Got it for valentine's day for the hubs. He loved it! Lots of bananas and they lasted for a long time. I gave it to him right when it arrived in the mail but i could have hidden it and brought it out for the big day but i didn't want any of them to ripen without me knowing.
Miami Fruit bananas are the BEST bananas you can purchase in the United States. Soooo much better than what you find at grocery stores. Worth every penny, and it feels so good to support sustainable, small-scale farming and a caring company led by awesome humans.
Wonderful collection, lots different tastes. And all in good condition when they came.
Fun item to enjoy with family as a gift. Who doesn’t want to know what the original worlds most popular banana tasted like !
I love it! My one request is I'd like a list of what varieties I get in each box.
There are many banana varieties ripening at various times of the year and I don't know what varieties Miami Fruit has shipped to me, but they are very good. It would be nice of Miami Fruit would identify each variety in each box...just my wish... The bananas were well packed and timely shipped.
Dealing with Miami Fruit has been a pleasure. The staff has been friendly and replies quickly to questions & cooments. The one time the fruit was damaged the box was quickly replaced.
We have appreciated all the different varieties of bananas to which we’ve been introduced through the subscription.
I don’t eat store bananas because I don’t like the taste or the global damage they are forced to make.
But these ‘exotics’ are fantastic.
Only wish there was a cue card for the uninitiated so we could plan sweet and savory dishes before peeling and tasting.
Great to experience a variety of bananas! Sadly I didn't get the two kinds I had thought would be included: the gros michel and the blue 'ice cream' bananas. Still enjoyed the ones we got! The different textured and flavor variations were neat to try. We cooked most of them in butter, cinnamon and honey since they were not very sweet and a bit too firm even when ripe.
I’m always excited when the box arrives. The bananas arrive in various stages of ripeness. They usually all ripen perfectly over a period of two weeks. If too many ripen at once, I peel them, place the peeled bananas in an airtight container and refrigerate them.
I wanted to get a variety banana box ever since I got some bananas in a small variety box I had gotten in the past. I couldn’t stop thinking about how much better these bananas were than the ones at the grocery store. I’m from Miami but have since moved to Milwaukee, I pretty much stalk this site year round now. I highly recommend anything from Miami fruit. Everything is packaged so well, customer service is great and the fruit is so good! My body is so happy when I get to treat myself to some of these wonderful fruits. You get a LOT more in the large box so I def recommend going large.
We got 8 different varieties of bananas and have loved trying each of them! Cuban greens are a big favorite!
This was such a fun gift you send. It was fun to hear the stories about how the bananas are different and how to cook them.
Thank you for the yummy fun.
Got lots of bananas for the price, and it was so I retesting to try different types. Id do it again, and it would make a great gift.
The bananas were green when they arrived but slowly ripened over the next few days. All were delicious.
We are still enjoying bananas from the Christmas Eve delivery. I
I wish the shipping box offered these tropical fruit more protection as they traveled from warm Miami to frozen Boston. They were in a strong cardboard box with holes.
A better ripening guide beyond that on the website would be helpful - even though we are familiar with green bananas. Is the guide better for more exotic, unfamiliar fruit?
What temperature is optimum for ripening and storage? Put an apple in with them? Light or dark storage? Etc...
Overall the bananas have been tasty, but I suspect they might have been better with less exposure to cold.
I got several varieties of banana's that arrived on time, the bananas were also unripe which is perfect.
The customer services was also exceptional, however, I do wish there was a phone number to contact Miami Fruits directly, instead of through e-mails.
The fruit were so good as well as very unique! Never knew there can be so many cant wait for my next order!
I sent this box to my parents upon the recommendation from @hels (Helen Rosner, The New Yorker)! My mom was THRILLED, compared herself to Columbo with his bananas. She loved trying the variety sent to her. I'm going to send a box to myself!
The banana variety box arrived and everything looks great. We’re still waiting for them to ripen enough to eat, so can’t tell you how good they will taste.
Thank you so much for the banana varieties! They're delicious!
Miami fruit is awesome!
Excellent customer service
I have recently heard about MiamiFruit and decided to try their large variety box. I live in the Phoenix Arizona area and we have only one type of banana sold locally and being right before Christmas I decided to give MiamiFruit a try and buy the banana variety box. Totally pleased! The bananas arrived very well packaged and very green. I am waiting for them to ripen and have sent a photo of the many different varieties I received so I may know the types. I received over 6 different varieties in one box and several hands of one type to 2 bananas of the 6th type. MiamiFruit replied quickly to my email questions and I’m excited to buy from them again. Especially in the summer!
Miami Fruit, you've ruined me!! After having your Banana Box variety, I just cannot stomach the regular grocery store banana's anymore. I love all the different kinds with their flavors and textures.
I'm a customer for life!!!!!
Delicious and sweet. Most usually arrive in various degrees of ripeness so they will be ready for eating over a period of a week or two.
We LOVE getting our banana boxes from Miami Fruit! We love knowing that the farm workers are treated with respect and that our money is going towards an ethically vegan small business!
The bananas are DELICIOUS and we eat them raw or use them for our banana nice cream shakes! SO GOOD! Thanks Miami Fruit!
Fantastic experience having bananas that are FAR FAR better than anything in a grocery store. Now, I'm spoiled and cannot go back to those things.
