The inflorescences hang vertically with red-purple bracts which are yellow or green on the inner surface. Yellow male flowers. The plants start to flower about 231 days after planting. The period from flowering to harvest is 40 days.

The fruit flesh has a very sweet and tender taste. It is generally always eaten fresh right away because of its fragility which makes it difficult to store or transport over long distances. Fruit is also rarely processed or used in cooking. All bananas contain natural sources of three sugars namely sucrose, fructose and glucose.
