Balaika’s Maghrabi Banana is an average-sized and delicate banana with a thin skin. This makes it delicate to handle, but it is worth the trouble, because it has a subtle aroma, a sweet taste and a firm texture. These characteristics are enhanced by the organic farming methods we use to grow them.
Balaika bananas are biodynamically certified by the Demeter Bund through the Center of Organic Agriculture in Egypt (COAE). They obtained the Demeter Certificate in September of 1997. Balaika bananas are now distributed only in Cairo, Egypt.
