Hey Steve, I was wondering if you saw any of the 'Gros Michel' bananas in Thailand? The ones that you are using kind of look like them, they are shorter and fatter than the bananas I am used to seeing and pictures of Gros Michel bananas look like that.
'In the 1950s, Panama disease, a wilt caused by the fungus Fusarium oxysporum, wiped out vast tracts of ‘Gros Michel’ plantations in South America and Africa, but the cultivar survived in Thailand.'
This banana dessert looks delicious by the way! :D
