Food Nooz: The Japanese Have Invented A New Banana

Scientists in Japan have created a new type of banana that has an edible peel. 

Full Story

Japan's Mongee Banana (pronounced “mon-gay” and “mongee” is Okayama slang for “incredible”) is a very special banana. Why? It’s only grown and produced at D&T Farm in Okayama Prefecture, and they only sell 10 bananas per week. One banana costs 648 yen (about US$5.75), but the most interesting thing about this banana is that you can eat the skin! How? They use a method called “Freeze Thaw Awakening”, which extracts and implements the DNA of fruits in order to produce specimen similar to ancient times, which then allows them to be grown in a cooler climate. Bananas produced in this way were successfully grown for the first time in November. Since they’re raised in a non-tropical climate, they don’t have any natural predators, which means no pesticides are used and Mongee Bananas are organically grown. They’re sweeter than regular bananas, with 24.8 grams of sugar, as opposed to the average 18.3 grams. Because of that, they’re also stickier and have a much stronger smell. Try this incredible edible fruit! 🍌👌🇯🇵️ (Source/Images ©SoraNews24) #freedomjapanesemarket #okayama #japan #japanese #mongee #banana #edible #edibleskin #incredible #fruit #organic #organicallygrown #snack #box #japanesefood #rare #didyouknow #fyi #info #love #delicacy #landoftherisingsun #monday #thoughts #food #foodporn #foodgasm #foodlover
