Buff... Around 2.5 years ago, I spent a vacation in Playa Azúl,
Michoacán (South-Western Pacific coast of Mexico). The people I stayed
with gave me a bunch of bananas ripened on the plant. Each was the
size to 2-3 regular bananas, and realllllly delicious! Uncomparable to
any bananas I have ever found in the city.
